Carol ★★★★

Beautifully made with countless small moments of delicacy that are wonderfully played by Mara, Blanchett & filmed by Haynes. These two can't make grand statements or overtures because of the time period, so their love must be communicated with a glance or touch and everything is handled with such grace so you can pick up on it all. Burwell's score is fantastic as well, giving you everything necessary while also having the slightest hint of the more dangerous side of what could come of this pairing.
