Todd Haynes, 1995, 119 min., 35mm

Set in an affluent suburb in the San Fernando Valley in 1987, Safe tracks the physical and psychological breakdown of Carol White (Julianne Moore), a housewife suffering from multiple chemical sensitivity, or "20th Century Disease." Trying to cope with her unpredictable reactions to seemingly harmless everyday products through psychotherapy, she eventually retreats from the invisible chemical threats and enters a New Age community designed to help people with MCS recover.
