“FAR FROM HEAVEN” DIRECTOR TODD HAYNES MAY HAVE DONE IT AGAIN!
Three of our favorite people created a movie together that they showed in Cannes to considerable fanfare and a standing ovation. Can’t WAIT to see it! The guy in the middle is Todd Haynes, the incredible director responsible for one of our all-time favorite movies, Far From Heaven. Heaven starred Julianne Moore and Dennis Haysbert and took place in Connecticut in the 1950’s. It was gorgeously photographed and incredibly sensitive. Haynes is masterful at creating a midcentury vibe. His latest is called “Carol” and it concerns an aspiring young woman who works as a department store clerk, and falls in love with an older married woman. It takes place in the 50’s in New York City. Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) plays the young clerk and Kate Blanchett plays the older woman. Kate’s dress at the premier is a knockout, by the way.
