All That Heaven Allows

Criterion/Voyager (1955)
Drama, Romance
USA | English | Color | 1h 29min

Predicated on a May-December romance. The difference here is that the woman, attractive widow Cary Scott, is considerably older than the man, handsome gardener-landscaper Ron Kirby. Throwing conventional behavior to the winds and facing social ostracism, Cary pursues her romance with Ron, who is unjustly perceived as a fortune-hunter by Cary's friends and family -- especially her priggish brother Ned.
