This paper presents a detailed scene analysis of the sequence immediately after the scene "The Break Up" in Todd Haynes' 2002 film, Far From Heaven. The paper discusses the characters in the film, the film's use of music and its cinematography.

From the Paper:

"Immediately after the scene "The Break Up", we see Cathy walk from the warmly lit living room occupied by her husband to the unlit parlor where a window is opened onto the night sky. The music illustrating this transition foreshadows the momentous change occurring in Cathy's life by the use of a single instrument -- the piano interlude. The orchestral piece fades to highlight the piano solo, which signifies Cathy's new single status."
