Carol ★★★½

I wish I loved this film. It's very well made. Beautifully directed by Todd Haynes, stand out performances by Mara and Blanchett and amazing costumes by Sandy Powell but I just couldn't fully engage with it. As much as I love rom coms, straight romance films drag for me and this is a movie all about forbidden love, nothing ever explicitly stated all hush hush. There's moments I liked and I respect it, it just can't be more than just a good film for me.
