Far from Heaven (2002)

When the beautiful Julianne Moore discovers as have many
an American woman along the way (no doubt) that her
husband's pent  up frustrations and abusive outbursts and
demeanor are the result of  being a closet homosexual who is only just "found out" she turns to the  most unlikely source of comfort - a black man who presents as an "only  recently emancipated slave" as tempers on the matter run high in this small town it seems. 

Incredulously even this source of comfort turns out to be slow to  recognize her pain in any way as to bring her relief. Instead the man  she turns to seems to play  "hard to get" stringing her along for all the  signs she gives full acceptance and  brings the community along,  before it could be considered safe to take her up on  her obvious
 forward advances that are sexually aggressive in her articulation  with  him. Its sad that when movies that look at the American cultural  mosaic as  presently constituted ignore the great men of Europe who  at present are in the  millions in South American countries (Spanish men  that is). My brother in law is  from Chile and I have never met a man  who is kinder and more decent and caring to  the Irish spirit having  been welcomed rightly - that it is a terrible situation that  can only be  corrected by using education to eliminate bigotry against the human   spirit coming into its own were people can give each other the righter  kind of care that almost all are yet yearning for down there.
