Far From Heaven
Source: Catholic News Service
Poignant melodrama set in 1957 Connecticut where the prosperous life of a sweetly contented housewife (Julianne Moore) is completely upended when she discovers her husband (Dennis Quaid) in a homosexual embrace and she is scorned by the town for befriending her black gardener (Dennis Haysbert). Director Todd Haynes' lushly photographed period piece thoughtfully explores issues of racism, sexual identity and the role of women with delicacy, sensitivity and a focus on the humanity of all the characters. A brief homosexual kiss and implied affair, fleeting violence, alcohol abuse, some profanity and an instance of rough language. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
