(1995, DCP, 119m) dir Todd Haynes w/Julianne Moore, Xander Berkeley, Dean Norris. “Something is very wrong with Carol White. Has she developed an acute allergy to the chemicals that pervade the environment, or is her body sounding the alarm that her affluent yet emotionally-disconnected lifestyle is unsustainable? As clueless doctors and narcissistic New Age gurus besiege her with useless treatments and bogus therapies, Carol’s condition worsens, leaving the viewer privy to an unsettling but absorbing depiction of illness and anxiety in late-20th century America.” – Dave Gomshay, box office volunteer since October 2013.
