Movie Reviews

Boston Globe - 10/10 by Wesley MorrisThis is a love letter from one auteur to another that doesn't feel like a term paper. Instead, Far From Heaven is an honest-to-God drama with resonance all its own.
Philadelphia Inquirer - 10/10 by Steven ReaThe movie is, start to finish, candy-colored angst.
Chicago Reader - 10/10 by Jonathan RosenbaumThis brilliantly and comprehensively captures the look, feel, and sound of glamorous 50s tearjerkers like All That Heaven Allows, not to mock or feel superior to them but to say new things with their vocabulary.
Salon.com - 10/10 by Andrew O'HehirA movie for hardcore film geeks and regular folk alike, a stunning, and stunningly improbable, fusion of postmodern pastiche and old-school Hollywood melodrama. It's both a marvelous technical accomplishment and a tragic love story that sweeps you off your feet.
New York Post - 10/10 by Lou LumenickPerhaps the year's most daring and fully realized movie, is a pitch-perfect re-creation of '50s melodramas, showcasing a four-hankie performance by a peroxided Julianne Moore.
Chicago Sun-Times - 10/10 by Roger EbertJulianne Moore, Dennis Quaid and Dennis Haysbert are called on to play characters whose instincts are wholly different from their own. By succeeding, they make their characters real, instead of stereotypes.
Los Angeles Times - 10/10 by Manohla DargisThe film's three leads are extraordinary, but what Moore does with her role is so beyond the parameters of what we call great acting that it nearly defies categorization.
Christian Science Monitor - 10/10 by David SterrittEasily the best American film so far this year, Far From Heaven is close to perfect.
The New York Times - 10/10 by Dana StevensIt rediscovers the aching, desiring humanity in a genre -- and a period-- too often subjected to easy parody or ironic appropriation. In a word, it's divine.
Chicago Tribune - 10/10 by Michael WilmingtonThere's an incongruous but ravishing beauty in Far From Heaven, and in its three excellent central performances, that counteracts the seeming kitschiness of the story.
