All That Heaven Allows ★★★

Reflective surfaces are widely used to foreshadow Cary’s dilemma and magnify the entrapment within her stifling conservative surroundings. I absolutely loved these shots, as well as the windows placed to divide Cary between the familiar and unfamiliar - at the mill, Ron’s friends’ skylight, and her own dreary view over the front lawn. But I mean we all know the real takeaway - NEVER say no to a ripped flanneled lumberjack gals.
