meet All the light we can’t seea war series from the creator of Peaky Blinders coming to Netflix later this year, based on the award-winning book of the same name. The streaming service opens a can of big names you tell it.
In 2014, Anthony Doerr published the book All the light we can’t see out, an instant classic. The American writer tells the story of a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths cross during World War II in occupied France. Both try in their own way to survive the devastating consequences of the war. The result was a very solid book that received a prestigious Pulitzer Prize. A recent highlight in WWII stories.
All the light we can’t see
Fortunately, Doerr’s story finds its way to another medium as well: television. Netflix announced in 2021 that it would acquire the rights to All the light we can’t see in his hands, and that he was going to make a Netflix Original series. November 2 is the day, and now we can already admire the first trailer of the war series.
But first we check the names involved, because curse, what a star team First of all, the script was written by Steven Knight, the man behind it. Peaky Blinders. Directed by Shawn Levy, producer of a dark little series called Strange things and the director of free boy. The main roles of All the light we can’t see they are interpreted, among others, by none other than Mark Ruffalo and Hugh Laurie. Exactly: a star team.

The series takes us to 1944. We follow Marie-Laure (Aria Mia Loberti), a blind French girl and her father, Daniel LeBlanc (Mark Ruffalo), who flee German-occupied Paris with a legendary diamond to prevent it from falling into danger. her hands. of the nazis
Pursued by a ruthless Gestapo officer who wants to obtain the stone for his own selfish purposes, they find refuge in St. Malo. There they move in with a reclusive uncle who provides clandestine radio transmissions for the resistance.
But in this once-idyllic seaside town, Marie-Laure’s path also inexorably intersects with her most unlikely soul mate: Werner (DarkLouis Hoffman), a brilliant teenager who is employed by the Hitler regime to track illegal radio transmissions. The result is a secret and dangerous bond that made Anthony Doerr’s book so strong and will hopefully take the Netflix adaptation to the next level as well.

In any case, the first trailer already promises a lot of good things, and it’s not because of the talent involved. Hopefully all those strong ingredients will also provide a satisfying end result. We will know from November 2: from then on, all four episodes of the war series will be on Netflix.
