Double Feature Discussion: Far from Heaven and All That Heaven Allows (DATE TBD)

January 17 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

The date is tentative and could change (participants will be able to provide input on the day/time).

Todd Haynes’ 2002 film Far from Heaven is a homage, both in story and style, to Douglas Sirk’s 1950s melodramas. In particular it is a remake of the 1955 Sirk film All That Heaven Allows (as well as Fassbender’s Ali: Fear Eats the Soul).

We will compare and contrast both films. Please watch the films beforehand if you have not previously done so.

If you want to stream these films you can Google “Far from Heaven streaming”.

“All that Heaven Allows” is available on Peacock TV (you can sign up for a free 7-day trial). https://www.peacocktv.com/watch-online/movies/drama/all-that-heaven-allows/f6a86983-6ffc-36ef-9a8c-7f6852f160c3
