It is the fall of 1957 in Connecticut, Cathy Whitaker (Julianne Moore) is returning home from a day of errands. Her husband, Frank (Dennis Quaid), is expected home for a dinner engagement. There's only one problem, no one has heard from Frank all afternoon. What begins as a curious snapshot of 1950s American values is soon transformed into a tangle of competing conflicts, igniting Cathy's friendships with her formidable gardener, Raymond (Dennis Haysbert), her plucky best friend and her maid. As secrets are revealed, Cathy is faced with choices that spur hatred and gossip within the community. (Original Title - Far From Heaven) 2002 Focus Features, LLC. All Rights Reserved.
