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.

A slice of nostalgic history long gone is lovingly created in Todd Haynes critique of 1950s American society. A perfect recreation of the melodramas of that decade touches on subjects that would have been definitely taboo in an era of repression and narrow mindedness. Totally relevant to society today, Far From Heaven is a stunning achievement, superbly realized with handsome design and impeccable performances form all concerned.

If you're looking for "happily ever after" this is not your movie. That's just one of the many good qualities about this movie.
