Still relevant today

Jane Wyman stars a wealthy widow in a conservative town and Rock Hudson stars as her much younger gardener who falls in love with her. As the relationship progresses she faces a nasty town gossip, disapproval from the friends at the club and finally the non acceptance by her children.

Quite insightful movie with some clear powerful messages for it's time. When a movie is good it doesn't feel dated even though the fact of dating a younger man nowadays is slightly less taboo the sense of ostracism for having a different relationship is still relevant today be it due to race gender or religion.

Liked the part where after making the sacrifice for her kids it turned out the kids didn't really care later on and she realizes she didn't have to sacrifice after all.

The cinematography is pretty.

Worth a watch.

It's very hard to watch this film without getting pulled into the story emotionally.

"All That Heaven Allows" is a very special film. This is because the viewer KNOWS what ultimately will happen in the story...and yet you are hooked and still want to see every minute of it. Additionally, rarely have I seen a film that sucked me into it so much and created such a strong emotional reaction within me.

Cary (Jane Wyman) is a widow with two grown children. Her husband left her off very well financially and her lifestyle hasn't changed much since his death...although she is terribly lonely. So, even with her friends, country club and children, Cary feels a longing...which isn't surprising considering she is only about 40 and in the prime of her life.

Ron (Rock Hudson) is a very nice man with simple needs. He is NOT the country club sort but is a good man at heart. When he and Cary begin dating, they are good for each other and they soon plan on marrying. But there is a huge problem...Cary's friends are horrid and her children no better. Because Ron is not rich nor of their social standing and because he's quite a bit younger than Cary, these 'friends' and family make it practically impossible for Cary and she eventually calls off their marriage. Fortunately, there is more to the story.

The direction by Douglas Sirk is perfect as are the sets and re- creation of the Vermont-like setting. Gorgeous cinematography, music and acting also work in the story's favor. A perfect love story...well worth seeing despite its familiar sort of story.

Jane Wyman And Rock Hudson In Romance With A Message

Call it a melodrama. At times, the music swells to remind us that so much is on the line. Call it a soap opera. The script hardly misses a chance to string along the emotions of the viewer. But "All That Heaven Allows" is more than that, if only for its message--a simple one, but one that is extremely important: to thine own self be true.

This story of romance would be worthwhile watching only for this lesson, but it offers more. The sets are beautiful. The direction is solid. Jane Wyman, who stars as Cary Scott, is convincing as the confused woman who loves a younger man but lacks the strength to follow her feelings. Rock Hudson plays the object of her affections--a man of principles who won't compromise his values. Gloria Talbott, who plays Cary's daughter, has a screen presence that, perhaps, could have been utilized more. Likewise, Agnes Moorehead as Cary's friend, Sara Warren.

This is not a great film, but it represents its era very well, in terms of quality and theme.
