  • Far from Heaven

    2002. USA. Written and directed by Todd Haynes. With Julianne Moore, Dennis Quaid, Dennis Haysbert, Patricia Clarkson. “Why did the New York critics vote a movie about a 1957 Connecticut housewife as 2002’s best? Because Far from Heaven is pure cinema. Because Julianne Moore and Dennis Quaid, as her gay husband, are in peak form. And because director Todd Haynes, channeling Douglas Sirk’s magnificent obsession with shadows and symbols that define character, creates an imitation of life from half a century ago that holds up a cracked mirror to the here and now” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone). NYFCC Best Picture, 2002. 107 min.
