Far from Heaven



Well, it's still Monday for another half hour! Sorry this is so late, just got back from Manchester today. I will share photos from that very soon. In the meantime I wanted to share this amazing film with you, it's called Far from Heaven by Todd Haynes. It's a beautiful and poignant film about a housewife in 1950s America dealing with issues surrounding her husband's sexuality and her attraction to an African American man who is also of a lower class than her.

Far from Heaven explores the controversy surrounding issues of sexuality and race in the 1950s and manages to look visually stunning whilst doing so, the colours are amazingly intense. It also has one of my favorite actresses of all time in it, Julianne Moore. Before Mad Men this is where I got my 1950s fashion inspiration and is a must see.

  2. Hmmm, you know, theoretically I should have loved Far From Heaven. It's the favourite film of one of my best friends as well.. I just didn't like it Claire, I have to say! I thought that it took too much time getting to the point and very little exploration of each issue it tired to address when it got close to the issue.

    Julianne Moore was great, and the direction and fashion were too. Maybe I just have a problem taking Denis Quaid seriously?? ;)
