All That Heaven Allows

Cary Scott (Oscar winner Jane Wyman, The Lost Weekend, The Blue Veil) is an upper-class widow who throws societal norms out the window when she falls for Ron Kirby, a handsome young gardener (Rock Hudson, Giant, Pillow Talk). Her children and country club social circle are aghast, her brother is suspicious of Ron’s intentions, and Cary begins to face social ostracism for her amorous pursuits. With director Douglas Sirk (Imitation of Life, Magnificent Obsession) at the helm, All That Heaven Allows is a sweeping, unforgettable romance for the ages.
