As conventional norms of the time challenge their undeniable attraction, an honest story emerges to reveal the resilience of the heart in the face of change. A young woman in her 20s, Therese Belivet (Rooney Mara), is a clerk working in a Manhattan department store and dreaming of a more fulfilling life when she meets Carol (Cate Blanchett), an alluring woman trapped in a loveless, convenient marriage. As an immediate connection sparks between them, the innocence of their first encounter dims and their connection deepens. While Carol breaks free from the confines of marriage, her husband (Kyle Chandler) begins to question her competence as a mother as her involvement with Therese and close relationship with her best friend Abby (Sarah Paulson) come to light.
Plot: In 1950s New York, a department-store clerk who dreams of a better life falls for an older, married woman.

> Just when it can’t get any better…
The first thing I noticed was after seeing the movie is there’s some kind of mistake in the Oscars nominee. Rooney Mara should have been on the lead role list, while Cate Blanchett in the supporting character’s. Maybe the Academy people misunderstood that the title role must be the lead character. Theirs switched place actually does not make any sense. Anyway the Oscars never made sense at all.
This story was okay, but adapted screenplay and direction, especially the music was excellent. For the ending scene alone, you will be tempted to raise your rating than what you initially thought it deserves. I was not expecting the movie to be awesome, so I’m not upset for the overall movie.
Believe me, the last thing I want in this movie is to see Cate Blanchett in naked. Maybe out of respect or her age or she’s not attracted to me, there are plenty of reasons that I can’t figure it out which one, but after knowing what this theme is, I was only praying for that not to happen. And obviously that is unavoidable, otherwise the movie will lose its soul and strength.
Well, it was better than I thought, both the actresses were good, but Rooney Mara dominated. Whatever category she’s in for the Oscars, I’ll be happy if she wins. It is not a must watch, but a decent movie and betters in some parts.
‘Carol’ is beautifully shot and very maturely made. The acting was very class all around the film. The whole thing seemed like it was taken from the 40s. I loved how fine it all looked and felt and it deserved a lot more awards than it got.
I watched Carol at the New York Film Festival, days after watching Freeheld. Since both movies talk about love relationship between two women, I was afraid I was going to see the same thing. Gladly, I couldn’t be more wrong. Carol is such a beautiful movie, subtler than I had expected.
Even though I loved the movie, I’m aware that it’s not for everybody. It’s not fast paced, as current films tend to be. It takes its time to carefully construct the characters and to make us root for them. Credit is due to the cast, as Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara are brilliant, and to the director Todd Haynes, who conducts well the story.
Moreover, the film is visually stunning, with impeccable make-ups and wardrobes, not to mention the beautiful locations covered in snow while they take a road-trip. Finally, the soundtrack is equally wonderful, with songs that correctly set the tone of their relationship.
It probably won’t be a box office hit, but I do hope everybody gets a chance to see it eventually.

It’s just a beautiful love story
Usually LGBTQ films portray characters’ struggle, fight against society, and decisions to close or open. Rather, ‘Carol’ focuses on Carol and Therese’s intimacy, love, and heartbreak. The story sticks to personal level, so it can go deeper and closer.
There are some factors that contribute to intensify romantic atmosphere: camera angle & composition and setting. First, when audience sees Carol or Therese, there are some things in between: through the window, sometimes mist and rain on the window, making objects blurry and through blocking walls on the sides so wee see the woman standing in narrow view. All those means let viewers feel as if they are taking a ‘glimpse’ of a couple. Haynes moves audience into the movie almost physically, reducing the distance between them and the screen.
The director brings back not only physical aspect of New York in 1950s but also aesthetic and vibe. This time, Haynes moves us back in time when romance was bloomed, adding a sense of nostalgia as well. Styling, color, lighting, weather, props.. All are just perfect for the setting, making romance more romantic.
