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

  1. Eagen's restaurant - filmed as the "All Black Restaurant" was located in North Arlington, NJ. Now it's a CVS.

    1. Thanks so much for the info, Vicki! I'm sorry to hear it's not around anymore.

  2. The car wash was a closed down gas station to the left of Eagen's Restaurant on the corner of Belleville Turnpike and River Road in North Arlington, NJ
