  • movie Description
  • Far from Heaven is a 2002 period drama from acclaimed director Todd Haynes (I'm Not There, Velvet Goldmine, Safe). Set in Hartford, Connecticut, in 1957, Far From Heaven centers on a 'perfect' housewife, Cathy Whitaker (Julianne Moore, Boogie Nights, Evolution, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, The Kids Are All Right, Magnolia, The Big Lebowski, Children of Men), whose life revolves around her rising-executive husband Frank (Dennis Quaid, Innerspace, The Day After Tomorrow, Frequency, The Alamo, Dreamscape, Jaws 3-D), her children, her spotless home and her fashion suburban neighborhood. For all her efforts, Cathy's marriage is not quite right. When she finds out why, her wonderful world suddenly turns into a minefield. Desperately isolated, she turns for sympathy to Raymond Deagan (Dennis Haysbert, Heat, 24, The Unit), the wise, kindhearted black man who tends her yard. Their innocent friendship so profoundly violates community standards that her friends respond with ferocious cruelty.moreless
