FAR FROM HEAVEN (CD)
Composed by: Elmer Bernstein

NEAR MINT - UNSEALED - ONLY ONE AVAILABLE

"On the opening track of Far From Heaven ("Autumn in Connecticut"), a solo piano begins playing very softly as if announcing the simple lifestyle in a wealthy 1950s suburban community." —Roger Hall

Bernstein's great sensitivity is echoed by director Haynes, who writes: "I believe he knew precisely the role that music would need to play in a film like this. I knew Elmer was not just a master composer, but a man of poignant, radical insight—not to mention of vigorous intelligence."

The well-illustrated CD booklet has more than the usual brief comments from the composer and the director.

Cathy (Julianne Moore) is the perfect 50s housewife, living the perfect 50s life: healthy kids, successful husband, social prominence. Then one night she surprises her husband Frank (Dennis Quaid) having sex with another man, and her tidy world starts spinning out of control. In her confusion and grief, she finds consolation in the friendship of their African-American gardener, Raymond (Dennis Haysbert) - a socially taboo relationship that leads to the further disintegration of life as she knew it. Despite Cathy and Frank's struggle to keep their marriage afloat, the reality of his homosexuality and her feelings for Raymond open a painful, if more honest, chapter in their lives. 2002
