Racism - Movies (32 movies items)

" Julianne Moore as Cathy Whitaker and Dennis Haysbert as Raymond Deagan Throughout Far From Heaven, one of the central conflicts faced by the main protagonist Cathy Whitaker comes from her attraction towards Raymond Deagan, the son of her recently deceased gardener, and how it develops in the face of her estrangement from her husband, Frank Whitaker, as he deals with his developing homosexual tendencies.
