Alicia Vikander revealed that she wanted to do this film because she's always been a big fan of Michael Fassbender's work

While filming, local Stanley farmer Ritchie Wells scored a role in the film with the bullock team he has been training for five years

The Novel version of the movie was set in Western Australia, but some of the film was filmed at Dunedin, Malborough Region and Otago Peninsula in New Zealand

'The Light Between Oceans' is Derek Cianfrance's fourth film and the first film of his to be adapted from a novel.

Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander revealed that Derek Cianfrance made them live together on set for six weeks

Filmed at Stanley, a quiet seaside town in north-west Tasmania, the local spokespersons hope that the film will help enhance the amount of tourists in the area
