Two women who forge a close connection despite their isolation in the mid-19th-century American frontier.



Variety - Guy Lodge
This is filmmaking as attuned to incremental shifts in light and landscape (Romania’s, in fact, gorgeously filling in for undeveloped upstate New York) as the ebb and flow of a character’s interior joy, written in a face unaccustomed to smiling.
The Telegraph - Robbie Collin
It's as simultaneously chilling and warming as a slug of ice-cold vodka, and just as liable to make your mind swim and eyes prick.
IndieWire - David Ehrlich
The World to Come is at its sharpest when trying to articulate the alchemy that happens when theory and sensation collide with each other and morph into something new.
Screen Daily - Jonathan Romney
Scripted with heightened literary cadences by Ron Hansen and Jim Shepard, the film is well crafted in every respect, and marks an acting career high for Katherine Waterston, as well as a fine showcase for the ever more impressive Vanessa Kirby.
The Playlist - Jessica Kiang
Although arranged around a fulfilling, life-changing connection The World to Come is a deeply lonesome lovesong.
