Netflix has revealed a behind the scenes look at its new limited series All The Light We Cannot See.
Adapted from the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, All The Light We Cannot See is a groundbreaking limited series that unfurls the tale of Marie-Laure, a visually impaired French girl, and her father, Daniel LeBlanc.
The series is released on Netflix on 2 November 2023.
Fleeing from German-occupied Paris with a legendary diamond to prevent it from falling into Nazi hands, they become the relentless targets of a cruel Gestapo officer with sinister motives. Seeking refuge in St. Malo, they find sanctuary with a reclusive uncle who secretly transmits resistance radio broadcasts.
In this once-charming seaside city, Marie-Laure’s journey unexpectedly intersects with Werner, a brilliant teenager recruited by Hitler’s regime to hunt illegal broadcasts. Instead, he discovers a hidden connection to Marie-Laure, sharing her belief in humanity and the potential for hope.
Spanning a decade and skilfully weaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, All The Light We Cannot See illuminates the profound power of human connections, offering a guiding light even in the darkest of times.
Directed by Shawn Levy and penned by Steven Knight, this four-part limited series introduces newcomers Aria Mia Loberti and Nell Sutton as the older and younger Marie-Laure, alongside a stellar cast featuring Mark Ruffalo as Daniel LeBlanc, Hugh Laurie as Uncle Etienne, Louis Hofmann as Werner, Lars Eidinger as Von Rumpel, and Marion Bailey as Madame Manec.
