A good period drama, with terrific acting, is a longtime staple of cinema. Last year, on the festival circuit, one such movie made the rounds in The World to Come. Featuring top notch work from Christopher Abbott, Casey Affleck, and especially Vanessa Kirby and Katherine Waterston, this romantic drama has a lot to offer. In advance of its release next month, in the middle of February, Bleecker Street has released a Trailer. Watching it, it’s clear to see how good Abbott, Affleck, Kirby, and Waterston are here. You can see the Trailer at the bottom of this post, as per the usual…
The film is a period romantic drama, as you might expect. Here’s the official synopsis: “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 A grieving Abigail tends to her withdrawn husband Dyer (Casey Affleck) as free-spirit Tallie bristles at the jealous control of her husband Finney (Christopher Abbott), when together their intimacy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.”
As mentioned above, this is a good one. It comes out on February 12th and is well worth looking out for. Here now is the Trailer for The World to Come:
Stay tuned for more on The World to Come!
