Screening & Live Event
Dir. Todd Haynes. 1995, 119 mins. Note: no good film prints are available for this title. The film is being projected from DVD. With Julianne Moore, Xander Berkeley, Dean Norris. As Carol White in Todd Haynes’s Safe, Moore is utterly compelling as a housewife who becomes allergic to the chemical toxins in her environment, and escapes to a retreat. Terrence Rafferty wrote in The New Yorker that Moore is amazingly vivid and touching; this is a heartbreaking portrait of a woman in full, panicked retreat from life.”
Please note that due to unforeseen circumstances, Christine Vachon will no longer be in attendance.
