Carol ★★★★

no other movie could possibly try to define tenderness when this one lives and breathes the very word. every motion made by a woman in these two quiet hours of love and longing is graceless, in the sense that it moves with the utmost grace, a paradox of itself. rooney mara, cate blanchett, and sarah paulson are three planets that orbit themselves and bow to no sun, son or otherwise.
