4 out of 10 Well worth viewing
Finola from Dublin, 20 Jan 2011
This was one of those films which I got a lot of press when Julia Moore won an award for her role in it a few years ago and I said I must go and see. But, as usual, it was gone from the cinema before I got to see it and I forgot about it. It is a lovely, sad but very interesting film set in middle class, America in a conservative State and it challenges all the rules of society at that time. Wonderful acting and lovely scenary.

3 out of 10 Well acted though dull melodrama
Barry from Dublin, 12 May 2008
Although critically acclaimed, I'm afraid I missed what all the fuss is about. This is a well acted though reasonably dull melodrama. The beauty is in the detailed 1950's setting. Unfortunately, the characters are just not engaging enough to care what happens to them. And it's hard to believe 24's President Palmer as a poor gardener.

3 out of 10 Far From Heaven
Declan from Wicklow, 30 Aug 2008
Bit of a TV movie feel to this, but good performances from Quaid, Moore and Haysbert, and great cinematography catching perfectly the feel of the '50s makes it worth watching.

0.5 out of 10 I didn't enjoy this
sarah from Kerry, 12 Aug 2013
I watched about half an hour but I just didn't enjoy the subject matter and I thought it was all very Stepford wives and very slow so I actually turned it off.

What's it about....
In 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 1950's American values is soon transformed into tangle of competing conflicts, igniting Cathy's friendships with her formidable gardener, Raymond (Dennis Haysbert), her plucky best friend...
