“With little pride and less hope, we begin the new year.” Official trailer for Mona Fastvold‘s romance western drama ‘The World To Come,’ starring Katherine Waterston and Vanessa Kirby as farmers’ wives who unexpectedly find love in America’s Northeast in the 1850s. Christopher Abbott, Casey Affleck, and Karina Ziana Gherasim also star.
In this powerful 19th century romance set in the American Northeast, Abigail (Katherine Waterston), a farmer’s wife, and her new neighbor Tallie (Vanessa Kirby) find themselves irrevocably drawn to each other. A grieving Abigail tends to her withdrawn husband Dyer (Casey Affleck) as free-spirit Tallie bristles at the jealous control of her husband Finney (Christopher Abbott), when together their intimacy begins to fill a void in each other’s lives they never knew existed. Directed by Mona Fastvold and scripted by Jim Shepard and Ron Hansen, THE WORLD TO COME explores how isolation is overcome by the intensity of human connection.
