Carol ★★★★½

This movie seems to be one of the most loved on this site which made me terrified to actually watch it. I'm so glad I finally did! Especially with chill of December and the Christmas season: it only added to the mesmerizing and bittersweet charm of this movie. Not once did the plot feel forced or the time period feel inauthentic.

I'm at a loss for words since I'm sure any praise I want to sing for this movie has already been sung. It's breathtaking and moving in so many ways. The cinematography is brilliant and each character brings another layer of reality to the story. The score is almost emotional. I'm in awe.
