ALL THAT HEAVEN ALLOWS

By Douglas Sirk

English, Colour, 89 minutes, 1955

We start 2019 at 'Movies at the Museum' with Douglas Sirk's 'All That Heaven Allows'. The film is a melodrama classic filmed in Technicolor, a cinematographic process of the 1940s and 50s. Like much of Sirk's oeuvre, the film looks at relationships and situations that challenge social mores in mid-20th century suburban America.
