Julianne Moore, Xander Berkeley, Dean Norris.
Carol White is an L.A. housewife in the late 1980s who comes down with a debilitating illness. After the doctors she sees can give her no clear diagnosis, she comes to believe that she has frighteningly extreme environmental allergies. A prescient commentary on self-help culture, as a metaphor for the AIDS crisis, as a drama about class and social estrangement, and as a horror film about what cannot be seen.
DVD, widescreen (1.85:1), mono.


Library Journal Review


creepy and all too human submitted by lisa on July 30, 2019, 2:22pm I do like Todd Haynes.

Yes submitted by jibkidder on June 22, 2022, 11:04pm Great early Todd Haynes and earlier Julianne Moore. A bit of ahead of its time in subject matter, I'd say, since, at least one gets the impression from the media, that this type of malady is more common these days.
