Carol ★★★★

Todd Haynes has crafted a gorgeous evocation of the 1950’s era here. It’s hugely confident filmmaking from a director that seems to excel when approaching complex social issues during a time when society was less accepting and appearances were everything. Like his Far From Heaven before it, this is a stunning work of art that has, at its centre, a truly devastating and melancholic love story where individuals struggle with their freedom of expression. Full review here
