This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

Set in 1850s America Vanessa Kirby and Katherine Waterston star as two 19th Century farmers wives trying to escape the drudgery and brutality of their lives, and their husbands. Ravishingly shot against the backdrop of the North-Eastern American landscape, Abigail (Waterston) and Tallie (Kirby) first find friendship, then solace and eventually romance in each other's company.

"It is a film to remember for its passion - for its belief that those tiny snatches of pleasure are worth holding onto, even if the rest of the world might never believe them even possible." Empire Magazine

"there's a satisfying literary intelligence at work. Co-writers Jim Shepard and Ron Hansen are both novelists, and The World to Come reflects that in its absorbing emotional layers and tender reverence for the written word. Wendy Ide - The Guardian
