Carol ★★★★★

"i don't like the idea of you being alone."
"i'm not alone."

it's the scene where they first see each other in the toyshop. the shot reverse shot of therese and carol. a stare that makes my heart stop every time it appears. the holiday spirit is saved through todd haynes' lens in that sequence. the love between two women becomes one of america's greatest treasures in carol. the christmas miracle.
