Followed by Q&A with the film’s celebrated Cinematographer, Ed Lachman. Special 35mm engagement.


The film tells the story of Cathy Whitaker, a 1950s housewife, living in wealthy suburban Connecticut as she sees her seemingly perfect life begin to fall apart. It is done in the style of a Douglas Sirk film (especially 1955’s All That Heaven Allows and 1959’s Imitation of Life), dealing with complex contemporary issues such as race, gender roles, sexual orientation and class.
