All the Light We Cannot See Is Worth Your Time!

All the Light We Cannot See

Told throughout four episodes, ‘All The Light We Cannot See’ follows the story of Marie-Laure (played by Loberti), a blind French girl, and her father, Daniel (Mark Ruffalo).

The son-daughter pair had fled German-occupied Paris with a legendary diamond to save it from getting into the hands of the Nazis.

The duo takes up residence in a seaside city called St. Malo with their reclusive uncle Etienne  (played by none other than Hugh Laurie). Etienne broadcasts radio shows as part of the resistance against the Nazis.

When Marie-Laurie starts following the paths of her uncle, she meets with a kind spirit, Werner (Hoffman),  a teenager Hitler enlists to find the broadcasters.

All The Light We Cannot See is based on a Pulitzer-winning book of the same title, written by Anthony Doerr. Teaming up with ‘Stranger Things’ director Shawn Levy and ‘Peaky Blinders’ writer, Steven Knight – Netflix has come up with this brainchild.

The series is based on WWII, and stars newcomers like Aria Mia Loberti who plays the lead role of Marie-Laurie. She was chosen through an open casting call held especially for low-vision actresses. This decision was taken by the director in hopes of staying as authentic as possible for the story. 

Loberti is joined by Louis Hoffman who plays the role of Werner – and Mark Ruffalo who plays her father, Daniel LeBlanc. Hugh Laurie plays the role of Etienne, Marie-Laurie’s reclusive uncle.

The official trailer has been released and it looks rather promising! As the trailer unfolds, we see Marie-Laurie opening with a broadcast speech, “In this time of darkness, of fading cities, I’m trying to remember: Light lasts forever. Darkness lasts not even for one second when you turn on the light.”

“I know that broadcasting can get me executed, but I will not be silenced.” Marie-Laurie gives a powerful speech in the trailer and we can’t help but turn all our attention to her.

The trailer follows a teaser that was released in April, whilst the series’ global premiere was at the Toronto Film Festival in September.
