Austin Film Society: Rebel Rebel: All That Heaven Allows
Not rated, 89 min. Directed by Douglas Sirk. Starring Jane Wyman, Rock Hudson and Agnes Moorehead.
Wyman plays a proper middle-class widow who falls in love with the gardener (Hudson) who prunes her bushes. Not only is there a problem with his social class and his belief system (he reads Thoreau!), the man is 15 years her junior. Her grown children and her country-club circle are scandalized.
