It is the fall of 1957 in Connecticut, Cathy Whitaker (Julianne Moore) is returning home from a day of errands. Her husband, Frank (Dennis Quaid), is expected home for a dinner engagement. There's only one problem, no one has heard from Frank all afternoon. What begins as a curious shapshot of 1950's American values is soon transformed into a tangle of competing conflicts, igniting Cathy's friendships with her formidable gardner, Raymond (Dennis Haysbert), her plucky best friend and her maid. As secrets are revealed, Cathy is faced with choices that spur hatred and gossip within the community.

Daves view - Far from Heaven review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

This is a compelling and intriguing film, Julianne Moore is as always superb in her role and this gritty emotional film really gets you thinking and the realism of how life was at this time with strong links to the attitudes of racisim and Gay lifestyles.

A very poinitive and somtimes tear jerking drama.

Thought provoking.

Reminder of past and present - Far from Heaven review by CC

Spoiler Alert

A stark reminder of the racist and bigoted attitudes of some people in small town America years ago, and that can still be found today being enabled by the actions of some politicians. The injustice against black and LGBT people is infuriating to watch and the ignorance is stark and difficult to comprehend in the 21st century. Superbly acted and scripted to reflect American Social priorities in those days. Interesting as social commentary but not really enjoyable to watch.
