It’s a claim that’s led to his memoir “Between Two Worlds,” multiple seasons of E!’s “Hollywood Medium with Tyler Henry” and “5 Life Lessons I’ve Learned from the Departed,” his national tour.

Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Kyle Chandler, Sarah Paulson

Director Todd Haynes has done it again with this beautiful, tense and emotional film – tapping into the mid-20th century to create an immediate and riveting story.
