Carol

Carol ★★★★★

Carol is a beautifully shot film with exceptional acting form Blanchett and Mara. Proving that the two of them are two of the best actors of our time.

From the moment their eyes meet across the department store you know something has ignited between them. From there you are taken through a romance that for the 50s was unacceptable. Especially for the mother of a young girl.

I also really enjoyed that the characters weren't thrust into anything immediately, but that it is a slow burn. Every almost touch or even non-touch is just as important as when they actually do make love in a scene that is one of the best of it's kind.

This film is easily one of the best romance films ever made, and deserves to have gotten more recognition than it did. It's a film that brings you in and actually makes you feel.

It is a must see to anyone who enjoys a serious romance film.
