All That Heaven Allows (1955)

All That Heaven Allows (1955)

Directed by Douglas Sirk
Not Rated / Narrative / 1 hour 29 minutes

This heartbreakingly beautiful indictment of 1950s American mores by Douglas Sirk follows the blossoming love between a well-off widow (Jane Wyman) and her handsome and earthy younger gardener (Rock Hudson). When their romance prompts the scorn of her children and country club friends, she must decide whether to pursue her own happiness or carry on a lonely, hemmed-in existence for the sake of the approval of others.
