‘The World to Come’ Trailer: This Year’s Forbidden Lesbian Period Romance is Here

Bleecker Street has released an official trailer for The World to Come. Following in the footsteps of Portrait of a Lady on Fire and Ammonite, the upcoming period piece drama features a forbidden lesbian romance that threatens to burn everything to the ground (literally).

Vanessa Kirby is on a bit of a hot streak right now. She’s is all, but guaranteed an Oscar nomination for Pieces of a Woman, and it looks like she could almost get another nomination alongside her co-star Katherine Waterston for The World to Come.

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 A grieving Abigail tends to her withdrawn husband Dyer (Casey Affleck) as free-spirit Tallie bristles at the jealous control of her husband Finney (Christopher Abbott), when together their intimacy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

The World to Come hits limited theaters February 12, 2021. It will hit video on demand March 2, 2021.
