“The World to Come” Exclusive Clip: Just a Couple of Frontier Lesbians Hungry for Food and Each Other

Mona Fastvold’s Venice International Film Festival Queer Lion Award-winning film, The World to Come, which played at Sundance last week, lands in limited release, and will be available on demand in early March — and we’ve got an exclusive clip for you! The World to Come follows Tallie (Vanessa Kirby) and Abigail (Katherine Waterston), two neighbors in upstate New York in the 1850s as their families battle the sparseness and harshness of the land and they battle their feelings for each other. When they begin to explore their desires, they realize they’ve been hungry in more ways than one — hey-o!
