The virtues of setting and shooting a film in Connecticut
A number of high-profile dramas have been shot and set amongst the immaculately manicured lawns and well-preserved historical homes of the Connecticut suburbs, among them Sam Mendes' Revolutionary Road, the movie Kate Winslet should have won the Oscar for, and (although not explicitly stated) Douglas Sirk's All That Heaven Allows, in which Rock Hudson does a bang-up job of looking like he's actually into women (in this case Jane Wyman).
