First Trailer for Lesbian Frontier Drama THE WORLD TO COME, Starring Vanessa Kirby and Katherine Waterston

the world to come
Kirby and Waterston saddle up for romance on the range.

In something of a gender reversal of Brokeback Mountain, director Mona Fastvold's The World to Come stars Vanessa Kirby and Katherine Waterston as two married woman who fall for one another on the American frontier. Christopher Abbott and Casey Affleck are the unsuspecting husbands. The film is based on a short story by Jim Shepard, who co-wrote the script with Ron Hansen, best known as the author of The Assassination of Jesse James.

The World To Come is currently scheduled for a UK cinema release on March 5th but that now seems unlikely.

Check out the first trailer below.



The official synopsis reads:

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 A grieving Abigail tends to her withdrawn husband Dyer (Casey Affleck) as free-spirit Tallie bristles at the jealous control of her husband Finney (Christopher Abbott), when together their intimacy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.
