Carol ★★★★★

"You seek resolutions because you are young. But you will understand this one day." - Carol Aird.

For a few weeks I've had a copy of Carol waiting on my laptop. It flirted with me constantly, even though I'd decided to wait for it to get to a theater near me. Well, after struggling for weeks it finally got here, and I'm so happy that I waited because Carol is one of the most genuine love stories I've ever seen.

Todd Haynes has crafted a timeless love story. Rooney Mara gives such a charming, and subdued performance that will leave you heartbroken. The way Cate Blanchett is able to play elegant, but at the same time vulnerable characters is fascinating, and I'll never get tired of it. Carter Burwell's score serves as a beautiful, and sometimes tormented, companion to the film.

I truly believe after a few revisits that Carol will become a favorite of mine. Just like Her and Blue is the Warmest Color did a few years back, and just like Therese Belivet, you'll also fall in love with Carol.

Carol gets 5 out of 5 stars.
