"Talk about movie heaven this is it. Julianne Moore and Dennis Quaid give the performances of their careers."

Far From Heaven is so miraculously executed, so forceful yet tender in its feeling, that it seems, in a single visionary stroke, to have taken the spirit of American independent cinema and brought it full circle back to the soul of vintage Hollywood."
"In a word, it's divine."
"It's one of the year's best movies."
"Director Todd Haynes' vision and sure command of the material results in an intensely moving film that's sure to be a major Oscar contender."
"Julianne Moore's performance is a triumph."
