Katherine Waterston and Vanessa Kirby star in this romantic drama set against the bleak backdrop of the East Coast American frontier.
Somewhere along the mid-19th century American East Coast frontier, two neighbouring couples battle hardship and isolation, witnessed by a splendid yet testing landscape, challenging them both physically and psychologically.
A romance blossoms between the two women as they seek escapism from their surroundings and their spouses (Casey Affleck and Christopher Abbott), but even a passionate romance struggles to survive in a hostile environment.
With ravishing cinematography and set against a backdrop of rich forests and vast American landscape, director Mona Fastvold intertwines a beautiful love story with stunning visuals.
