Carol ★★★★

Flawless acting and an early 1950s lesbian story that needed to be told. However, 2nd time around it just didn't have the same impact as the first time...the script had some problems that Todd Haynes' superb direction (and production design, score and costumes) didn't quite paper over. Still, Blanchett's "Mona Lisa smile" that was the film's final shot was one of the great, unforgettable moments on film in 2015.
