Anthony Doerr spent ten years researching and writing his 2014 book "All the Light We Cannot See," which was published in 2014.
The masterwork of fiction garnered a Pulitzer Prize and a Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction, as well as spending more than 200 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list.
Now it's going to the big screen in a superbly crafted adaptation that appears to do Doerr's work due.
Mark Ruffalo ("The Avengers") stars as an employee at France's Museum of Natural History, while Aria Mia Loberti (who is visually challenged in real life) plays his blind daughter, Marie-Laure.
Hugh Laurie ("House"), Louis Hofmann ("Red Sparrow"), and Lars Eidinger
When the Nazis take over France in 1940, Marie-Laure is a blind girl living in Paris.
Throughout the four-part series, Marie-Laure and her father, Daniel (Ruffalo), must abandon Paris for the Saint-Malo home of a reclusive uncle and World War I soldier, Etienne (Laurie).
They take a legendary diamond from the museum with them to prevent it from falling into the hands of the Nazis.
When they arrive in the beach town, they discover Etienne has been producing radio transmissions for the French Resistance, and Marie-Laure begins producing them as well.
