The World to Come
In January 1856 in rural Schoharie County in upstate New York, Abigail (Katherine Waterson) and her husband Dyer (Casey Affleck) live an isolated life in the country, working as farmers. When spring comes, Abigail meets a new couple that moves into the cabin beside them. She is immediately entranced by Tallie (Vanessa Kirby), the wife, and the two women form a delicate and deep relationship that helps them fill out the emptiness they didn’t even knew they felt. Intimacy and passion grow together with the consciousness about their situation. Their husbands react differently – Dyer decides to step back with his hurt feelings while Finney wants to keep Tallie away from Abigail.
