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!
