Far from Heaven is a 2002, Academy Award-nominated film written and directed by Todd Haynes and starring Julianne Moore, Dennis Quaid, Ben Moss, Ryan Ward, Dennis Haysbert, and Patricia Clarkson.

The film tells the story of Cathy Whitaker, a 1950s housewife, living in suburban Hartford as she sees her seemingly perfect life begin to fall apart. Although it is done in the style of a classic 1950s, Douglas Sirk film (especially All That Heaven Allows and Imitation of Life), it deals with complex contemporary issues such as race, sexuality, and class.
