Safe

1995 / 119min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: TODD HAYNES

CAST: JULIANNE MOORE, XANDER BERKELEY, DEAN NORRIS

Julianne Moore, her brittle, finely-calibrated performance in perfect synch with the eerie formal precision of Haynes’s filmmaking, plays a model homemaker who gradually becomes a housebound invalid, allergic to the atmosphere of the sterile affluence of the 1980s Southern California suburbs and beating a retreat from life itself. Sustaining a foreboding walls-closing-in atmosphere, Safe is not only one of Haynes’s most original and fully realized works, but one of the 1990s films that indisputably will last as long as movies do.

Safe is screening as part of Metrograph A to Z, a collection of films we think everybody should see. Click here for more info.
