Carol ★★★★½

144 of 365 Challenge

Had this on my list for ages so was so excited to check it out finally. No surprises here, I absolutely loved it.

Everything from the cast, the look of the film, the production design and costumes to the beautiful cinematography; shot on 16mm which coats every frame in a look and grain that just goes perfectly with the period, it was all amazing.

The characters were fascinating; Cate Blanchett portrays Carol with an air of mystery, while Rooney Mara is great as the young Therese, who falls 'into a trance' for her. The performances were fantastic and every scene they have is full of chemistry. It's such a beautiful, engaging story of self-reflection filled with romance and charm.

"My Angel. Flung out of space."
