Far From Heaven

Honestly, I'm so wrapped up in the movie itself that I'm having difficulty comparing it to any of our previous texts. An obvious one, however, is Bhabha's concept of colonization and attempting to have others imitate in order to fit in being represented by the gardener's failure to do so. Kathleen's husband, Frank, also fails in his attempts to fit in by imitating the "norm." Even Kathleen is at odds with the rest of society that wishes her to fit into a mold. THe ending solidifies the failure on both accounts by not allowing any of those who tried to fit in actually do so.
