Streaming giant, Netflix has just released the official trailer for its highly anticipated adaptation of ALL The Light We Cannot See and it really looks spectacularly bleak which is one thing that we kind of expected with it.

Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the same name from Anthony Doerr, Netflix’s own live-action take on the fictional World War II-era story seems very much like it will be a heart-wrenching watch when it gets to debut in early November.

In truth, we would expect nothing less from a war epic set that is very much largely set in August 1944, i.e. the latter stages of World War II. But All The Light We Cannot See isn’t just a tale that reveals the horrors of war, the title is equally a story about the power of human connection as well as hope, even in the darkest times. Check out the trailer for All The Light We Cannot See, which gets to launch exclusively on the best streaming service in the world (YouTube).

How All The Light We Cannot See Ranks Among Other Netflix Projects

And given to its seemingly expensive backdrops and sets, explosive action, as well as deeply intimate narrative, we really wouldn’t be surprised if All The Light We Cannot See becomes a permanent fixture on the best Netflix shows list. We will however have to see if its four 60-minute episodes are really as good as its trailer has painted them out to be just before we deliver an official verdict. And still, with award-winning actors which are inclusive of Marvel’s Mark Ruffalo, House’s Hugh Laurie, and Dark’s Louis Hofmann, plus newcomer as well as lead star Aria Mia Loberti, All The Light We Cannot See isn’t one that is short of star power.

Cast and Characters of the Series

The limited series as you should know also has some big names behind the camera, too. Steven Knight (Peaky Blinders, The Girl in the Spider’s Web) is known as its lead writer, while Shawn Levy on the other hand (Stranger Things, Free Guy) is on directing duties.

Netflix’s Larger-Than-Normal Plot Synopsis of the Series

If it is that you want an extensive peek behind the curtain to the story of the show, then you should know that Netflix has provided a larger-than-normal plot synopsis to wrap your eyes around.

“All The Light We Cannot See is a groundbreaking limited series that follows the story of Marie-Laure (Loberti), a blind French girl, and her father Daniel LeBlanc (Ruffalo), who flee German-occupied Paris with a legendary diamond to keep it from falling into the hands of the Nazis. Relentlessly pursued by a cruel Gestapo officer who seeks to possess the stone for his own selfish means, Marie-Laure and Daniel soon find refuge in St. Malo, where they take up residence with a reclusive uncle (Laurie) who transmits clandestine radio broadcasts as part of the resistance.

“Yet here in this once-idyllic seaside city, Marie-Laure’s path also collides inexorably with the unlikeliest of kindred spirits: Werner (Hofmann), a brilliant teenager enlisted by Hitler’s regime to track down illegal broadcasts, who instead shares a secret connection to Marie-Laure as well as her faith in humanity and the possibility of hope.”

Release Date

The series is exclusively produced by Levy, Dan Levine of Free Guy and The Adam Project, and Josh Barry of Shadow and Bone. The series as you should also know is set to make its way to the streaming service Netflix on Thursday, November 2.
