A Film by Todd Haynes

"SAFE" tells the story of Carol White, a Los Angeles housewife whose affluent environment turns against her in the form of an inexplicable illness. What begins as sudden allergic reactions to everyday chemicals, fragrances and fumes turns increasingly violent, transforming the laminated safety of Carol's existence into a terror of everyday life. When she is diagnosed with an immunity disorder called "Twentieth Century Disease," and sets off to New Mexico in search of treatment, Carol's journey turns inward. And, in the crisis of identity that results, "SAFE" reveals the ways in which disease infests our basic sense of who we are.
Check out where Safe placed in movie critics Top 10 List and other awards.
