Carol ★★★★½

2015 Movie Rankings

Carol is a nuanced and almost dream-like tale of forbidden love in a foregone time. It's the kind of romantic film that would cause even those who don't usually go for romantic films to fall hopelessly in its haze.

A classy masterclass by Rooney Mara, Cate Blanchett, cinematographer Edward Lachman, composer Carter Burwell, and director Todd Haynes, who more than deserved an Oscar nod for his work.

Carol comes highly recommended.
