One of the very best films I've seen in a long time. Very few films compare to it in terms of pure, breathtaking cinematic feel that totally transports you to that very specific period of which the film is set in. Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara have the best chemistry of any on screen couple I've ever seen, making their performances, and ultimately the film, exquisite to watch. To add just one further point, no other film, expect possibly '2001: A Space Odyssey', has looked as stunningly beautiful, and captivating to look at as this film does - every frame, every camera angle is perfected to brilliance. Todd Haynes has created a masterpiece.
