Far From Heaven

Todd Haynes USA, 2002

Joe Hackman's rating of the film Dem Himmel so fern

This movie had some of my favorite elements - period setting, social commentary, queerness, and Julianne Moore - so it was hard to resist. Some of the dialogue, especially the son's, didn't work, but the dual tabus of the couple's sexual desires make for some compelling drama.
