Far from Heaven

Directed by Todd Haynes
United States, France, 2002
Drama, LGBT+, History


Todd Haynes’ homage to Douglas Sirk’s style of social critique by way of melodrama masterfully tells the story of a well-to-do suburban Connecticut couple in the 1950s, straitjacketed by convention, desperate to live the lives they really want.
