Watch Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander Get Intimate in This Exclusive Clip


Look, I'm just gonna level with you: The new film The Light Between Oceans (out September 2) doesn't make things easy for its stars Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander. As a married couple living together on a remote island off the coast of Australia, Fassbender and Vikander play two romantic souls desperate to start a family, a dream thwarted by Vikander's inability to carry a child to term. When the couple stumbles upon a lost boat carrying a baby, then, they consider this child the miraculous answer to their prayers and begin to raise her themselves ... until they meet the woman (Rachel Weisz) who lost her husband and daughter at sea years ago and whose child, it soon becomes clear, is their own. A real dilemma! But let's not dwell on the tough stuff right now, because in this exclusive clip, we've got a peek at the romantic calm before the storm, as Fassbender and Vikander first fall in love, trace each other's bodies in bed, and engage in a playful shaving session. Just don't spoil the mood for them by hinting at the melodrama to come!
