Has anyone else seen this movie? It seems like it's gotten overlooked, though I don't know how wide of a release it's had.

They did a really great job of portraying the 50's - Julianne Moore was perfect as the mother, and Dennis Quaid and Dennis Haysbert (the president in 24) were really good too. The movie looked great - the colors were amazing.

For anyone who isn't familiar with it, the story is about a "perfect" white family in the 50's whose lives get turned upside down when it's discovered the father is gay. When the mother realizes that her husband has never really had feelings for her, she starts to fall in love with the family's African-American gardener.

Definitely worth seeing!
