“The movie is, start to finish, candy-coloured angst.”
   Philadelphia Inquirer

“Julianne Moore, Dennis Quaid and Dennis Haysbert are called on to play characters whose instincts are wholly different from their own. By succeeding, they make their characters real, instead of stereotypes.”
   Chicago Sun-Times

“Three sterling performances from Moore, Haysbert and Quaid, all of whom grapple with psychic pain in different, touching ways.”
   Washington Post

  1. Danny K (@dannykaz10)

    “Far From Heaven” gets its inspiration from the florid melodramas that director Douglas Sirk made in collaboration with producer Ross Hunter at Universal, working within the 1950s studio system. However, whereas Ozon has fun, merely flirting with signature Sirk ingredients, Haynes is serious and goes further. He re-creates Sirk’s soapy tableaux with such a single-minded, virtuosic flair that his bid for perfection becomes an unconstrained fetish.
    The result is a film that works as a tribute to a specific bygone film genre and style, but also to the era itself — the 1950s in all its repressed, hypocritical glory. “Far From Heaven” doesn’t merely play like a ’50s-style movie. It is a ’50s movie. Except for a couple of taboo issues that Haynes has moved from the background into the forefront, he’s created a film that looks and feels as if it was made in 1957, the year in which his story is set.
