Far From Heaven

Todd Haynes 〈Velvet Goldmine〉
Julianne Moore
〈The Hours〉
Dennis Quaid 〈Traffic〉
Dennis Haysbert  〈Random Hearts〉

It is the fall of 1957 in Hartford, Connecticut, and Cathy Whitaker (Julianne Moore) is returning home from a day of errands. Her hushand, Frank (Dennis Quaid) is expected home for dinner engagement. As Sybil, their maid, helps Cathy unload the car, David and Janice, the Whitaker children, are told to hurry inside and prepare for dinner. There's only one problem: neither Cathy nor Sybil has heard from Mr. Whitaker all afternoon.

What begins as a curiously un-ironic snapshot of 1950s American values is soon transformed into a tangel of competing conflicts, igniting Cathy's friendships with her formidable gardener, Raymond (Dennis Haysbert), her plucky best friend (Patricia Clarkson), and maid, Sybil (Viola Davis). As secrets are revealed, Cathy is faced with choices that spur hatred and gossip within the community. She comes to recognize her own desires, even as, in the process, she has to give up the object of them.
