Dir. Todd Haynes

An affluent and unexceptional homemaker in the suburbs develops multiple chemical sensitivity.


By the time this movie makes its point, I had almost lost interest. The sterile and obsessive execution clearly compliments the material, but isn’t always a rewarding viewing experience. Julianne Moore, however, allows for empathy even when it might not otherwise be warranted. The praise heaped on this movie feels purposely polarizing.
