In this film by Todd Haynes from 1995, Carol White is a housewife living the affluent life in a wealthy area of California when, over the span of a few months, she begins to develop debilitating sensitivities to her environment. Exhaust from a truck causes her to cough violently, she’s allergic to the new couch, and she goes into seizures one day at the dry cleaner’s. No one understands or believes her condition, least of all her husband or the family doctor. But the symptoms worsen, and Carol eventually discovers others who suffer from similar environmental illnesses.
