• The colors, the lighting, the camera angles and movements, the performances, the music! This gorgeous clip from our new digitial restoration of All That Heaven Allows perfectly encapsulates the all-encompassing style of director Douglas Sirk, who employed the conventions of Hollywood cinema to their most expressive potential. Watch how he frames Jane Wyman and Rock Hudson against a series of backdrops visually imbued with emotion, as their characters passionately discuss their forbidden love.
