A tear-jerker that feels out of the same era in which it's set, "Far From Heaven" is a touching tribute to classic melodrama, a powerful portrait of an ordinary life come undone, and a perfectly formed microcosm of a dramatically changing American landscape.

Underrated. A terrific film.

Borrowing the artificial-looking scenery and the sweetened dramatization of a typical 'sirkian' melodrama from six decades ago, Haynes at once honors the German master by probing the thematic scope of the sub-genre in Hollywood and subtly instigating meditations about sensitive contemporary issues now addressed without parsimony on the big screen (homosexuality, prejudice, interracial love), although during those conservative times they were problematically introduced in a veiled way and then coded by intelligent artists in big studio productions that were anything but innocent. Notice the sublime colors of the décors captured by Ed Lachman's lenses. A marvel of beauty, sensitivity and content.
