Watching Carol is like reading a really interesting book while relaxing on a Sunday afternoon. It is one of those movies that you probably heard about during its Oscar run, and have since delayed actually viewing it. Well now that it is on Netflix and other streaming services you have no excuse! It’s refreshingly unique, incredibly charming, and features a kind of story that hasn’t been told very often – a love story between two women. Both characters played by Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara attempt to live true to their own principles while facing unjust yet severe backlash from society. If you are open to it, the love story in this will stay with you forever.
Absolutely sublimely weighted and delicate piece of film. A superb cast and excellently acted. 1 person liked this review.
This movie is slow moving and in a lot of ways very bland, however, it cast such an elegant light on what it would have been like being a lesbian in the time. It is a very sexy, very tasteful movie with a lot of real drama. 7/10 0 people liked this review.
