‘The World to Come’ Trailer: Katherine Waterston and Vanessa Kirby Have a Fiery Frontier Romance

Another year, another doomed lesbian period romance.

But it is admittedly hard to resist a movie starring both acting heavyhitters Katherine Waterston and Vanessa Kirby. Watch The World to Come trailer below. The World to C...

Pieces of a Woman review – vehement but inauthentic childbirth drama

Kornél Mundruczó’s film, starring Vanessa Kirby and Shia LaBeouf as a young couple hit by tragedy, combines high trauma and horribly unconvincing stretches Hungarian director Kornél Mundruczó deserves our thanks for going somewhere very few film-makers want to go: out on a limb.

White God (2014) was a Hitchcockian nightmare about a mass uprising among all the dogs in a city, and Jupiter’s Mood (2...
