Far From Heaven
Dir. Todd Haynes. 2002, 107 mins. DCP. With Julianne Moore, Dennis Quaid, Dennis Haysbert, Patricia Clarkson. Moore received one of her four Oscar nominations as a 1950s housewife who falls in love with her black gardener in Todd Haynes’s exquisite and audacious update of Douglas Sirk’s Technicolor melodramas, drawing links between Bush-era identity politics and those of the Eisenhower 1950s.
