All That Heaven Allows 

Not Your Average Holiday Movie
(NR) USA – 1 hr 29 min  
1955 · d. Douglas Sirk 
Starring Jane Wyman, Rock Hudson

A lonely widow finds a second chance at love with a rugged landscaper several years her junior, but their romance is met with disapproval by her family and well-to-do social circle. A moving critique of American class and sexual politics, Sirk’s colorful melodrama stands as a pinnacle of the so-called “women’s film” genre.

All That Heaven Allows will be introduced by Jennifer Fleeger, Ph.D.
