All That Heaven Allows

All That Heaven Allows ★★★★★

Douglas Sirk’s picture can be viewed as a tearjerker but scratch beneath the surface and it's really a scathing attack on middle class snobbery and intolerance.

Jane Wyman is the middle-aged widow who falls in love with Rock Hudson’s gardener much to the disapproval of her family and friends: will she give in to pressure and end the relationship or stay true to her heart?

Stunning visuals decorate a masterpiece of the melodrama genre.
