The World to Come

In this powerful 19th century romance set in the American Northeast, Abigail (Waterston), a farmer’s wife, and her new neighbour Tallie (Kirby) find themselves irrevocably drawn to each other. A grieving Abigail tends to her withdrawn husband Dyer (Affleck) as free spirit Tallie bristles at the jealous control of her husband Finney.

Together, their intimacy begins to fill a void in each other’s lives they never knew existed. Ravishingly beautiful, Fastvold’s drama is a spellbinding tale.
