Casey Affleck stars and produces The World to Come: “It is great to be able to tell my own stories”

Actor Casey Affleck stars and produces THE WORLD TO COME, directed by Mona Fastvold. In this interview, Affleck talks about his character in the film and also about being able to produce the stories he really wants to tell. Director Mona Fastvold talks about the challenges she faced during the filming of the movie. 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 A grieving Abigail tends to her withdrawn husband Dyer (Casey Affleck) as free-spirit Tallie bristles at the jealous control of her husband Finney (Christopher Abbott), when together their intimacy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. Scripted by Jim Shepard and Ron Hansen, THE WORLD TO COME explores how isolation is overcome by the intensity of human connection. The film opens in theaters on February 12th, and will be on digital from March 2nd.
