Here's the Trailer for Casey Affleck's Film About a World Without Women, in Case You Wanted to See What That Looks Like

Casey Affleck—who was accused of sexual harassment, referring to women as cows, and telling a woman it’s “about time she got pregnant”—has written, directed, and starred in a movie about what the world would look like if all women were wiped out by a disease.

What does that world look like? According to the film’s trailer, bleak! Affleck plays a father looking after his young daughter, who appears to be a lone girl disguised as a boy to protect her from men. It inevitably joins the recent flock of dystopian dramas that stress the importance of fatherhood, like It Comes at Night or A Quiet Place.

Affleck previously insisted the movie has nothing to do with the sexual harassment allegations against him or anything to do with MeToo. “I wrote this movie and made this movie before all of those things became part of the conversation,” he said earlier this year. “I hope people keep their minds open and be responsible and measured in their reactions. And people can talk for themselves. It’s not something I can control.”

OK since this dystopia where women are scarce looks like a bunch of BS, I would like to take this opportunity to tell people about a great dystopia where women are scarce: The Book of the Unnamed Midwife.

It is literally what it says on the title. Dystopia happens, men become animals and try to breed woman, a lone midwife goes around escaping assholes and helping woman with her medical knowledge. It is honestly one of the best dystopias I have ever read and is so arresting I had to read it in one sitting.

The second book, The Book of Etta is also great. I haven’t read the third one yet but I expect to be fantastic as well.
