In upstate New York in the 1850s, Abigail (Katherine Waterston) begins a new year on the rural farm where she lives with her husband Dyer (Casey Affleck). As days pass, Abigail continues to maintain a mundane equilibrium with her husband, but it is her considered narrated diaries which offer a picture into a vastly richer internal life.

Set against a splendid yet testing landscape exploding into springtime, Abigail meets Tallie (Vanessa Kirby, Pieces of a Woman), an emotionally frank and arrestingly beautiful newcomer renting a neighbouring farm with husband, Finney (Christopher Abbott, Possessor, SWIFF’21). The two women slowly orbit one another, closer and closer, filling a void in their lives which neither knew existed.

Filmed in timeless 16mm, Mona Fastvold (Vox Lux) sets alight a kerosene romance, elegantly unravelling a spellbinding love story of stolen hours with a uniquely deft and loving touch.

“A ravishingly beautiful love story, with painterly visuals that nod to the work of Winslow Homer and John Singer Sargent.” - The Guardian
