(Todd Haynes, 1995, 119 min, USA, Color, 35mm)

Julianne Moore delivers a breakthrough performance as a Los Angeles housewife who contracts a debilitating illness. As her doctors offer no clear diagnosis, she comes to believe that she has developed frighteningly extreme environmental allergies. A profoundly unsettling work from the great American director Todd Haynes.

–Voted the best film of the 1990s in a Village Voice poll of more than fifty critics.
