A new trailer for the upcoming Netflix series All The Light We Cannot See has arrived. The historical drama was directed by the startlingly prolific director Shawn Levy.
The four-episode series is based on Anthony Doerr’s Pulitzer Award-winning novel of the same name, set in the tense climes of World War II France.
The official synopsis reads: “The story of Marie-Laure, a blind French teenager, and Werner, a German soldier, whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II.”
For the poignant adaptation, Levy has attracted a watertight cast, including Mark Ruffalo, Hugh Laurie, Aria Mia Loberti, Louis Hofmann, Lars Eidinger and Luna Wedler.
Unlike many war dramas, All the Light We Cannot See gives a snapshot of life on both sides of the global conflict as Marie-Laure, a blind French girl, channels her inner Adrian Cronauer to bring hope to listeners far and wide.
The comforting words of Loberti’s Marie-Laure crucially reach the ears of Louis Hofmann’s Werner Pfenning, a young German man forced to join the Nazi forces. He, too, is just waiting for the war to end so he can follow his dreams.
The four-part drama was written for the screen by Steven Knight and cored by revered composer James Newton Howard. All four episodes will be available to stream on Netflix from November 2nd.
