Far From Heaven (2002)




Todd Haynes' tale of forbidden loves in 1950s Connecticut is a fantastic film. Despite the superb acting and breathtaking cinematography, Far From Heaven was snubbed by the academy with the paltry nominations it actually did receive.  Where's Jada Pinkett-Smith when you need her?

Far From Heaven was filmed in Yonkers, NY and Elizabeth, Cranford, Hackensack, Bloomfield, Hohokus and Glen Ridge, NJ
