Nominated for four Oscars, the drama Far From Heaven will street April 1 (prebook VHS March 11, DVD Feb. 25). The Universal Studios Home Video title is rental-priced on VHS and $26.98 ($19.95 MAP) on DVD.

The film's four Academy Award nominations are for best actress (Julianne Moore), best original screenplay (Todd Haynes), best original score (Elmer Bernstein) and best cinematography (Edward Lachman).

DVD extras will include:
  • the featurette "The Making of Far From Heaven";
  • a Q&A segment, with Julianne Moore and Todd Haynes, filmed in front of a live audience;
  • and a Sundance Channel "Anatomy of a Scene," which looks at a tense, carefully orchestrated cocktail scene from the film.

    It has also garnered five Independent Spirit Awards nominations -- best feature, best director (Todd Haynes), best female lead (Julianne Moore), best supporting male (Dennis Quaid) and best cinematography -- and two Screen Actors Guild Awards -- best actress (Julianne Moore) and best supporting actor (Dennis Quaid).

    The movie takes place in the 1950s and stars Julianne Moore as a suburban wife who has to confront her husband's forbidden love and her own life path.
