Films in 50 words-ish: Far From Heaven

Buy it!Many films have examined bigotry better than Far from Heaven, which asks for trouble by entering the double minefield of race and sexuality. The picture postcard 1950s setting is delightful, but does it add to the body of knowledge? Ultimately no, but we should only stop making films like this when bigotry is dead.
