Movie Description:
In an adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's seminal novel The Price of Salt, CAROL follows two women from very different backgrounds who find themselves in an unexpected love affair in 1950s New York. 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.

    In the context of WW2 narratives, the story of Operation Mincemeat is unique a bizarre and seductive cinematic blend of high-level espionage and ingenious fiction, where the stakes could hardly be higher. Michelle Ashford's script fuses multiple strands and moods: tense, romantic, thrilling, unexpectedly funny, and endlessly surprising. It tells a richly human story of the soldiers we seldom see, who fight a different kind of war in shadows and deception, haunted by the knowledge that certainty and guarantee of success are nowhere to be found.

Carol

Gazing each other across the room or touching someone for the first time or even talk about them to someone else is depicted as electrifying as it is in real life and this is something that very few of them can achieve. Carol is a suave and mild love story that is too practical to be a film and still Todd Haynes pulls it off with Phyllis Nagy's smart adaptation from the novel with enough drama for the audience to rely upon for 2 whole hours. Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara are the keys that withholds the audience throughout the movie with a great supporting cast like Sarah Paulson and Kyle Chandler. Carol as mentioned earlier is electrifying mortified portrayal of two stellar performances that subdued the smart writing, perfect editing and horrific emotions running in each and every scene in it.

My Highest Recommendation

I wish that more films of this caliber would be brought to the screen. I wish that Hollywood would dedicate more money to art and less to the mindlessly sensational. "Carol" raises my hopes for the future of motion pictures. The film is a love story of the most classic kind. There is nothing new or striking in the plot. It is as old as life itself. Rather, the film exquisitely, delicately, beautifully, romantically, artistically and heartbreakingly portrays two people falling in love and then facing the challenges that their love faces. The acting of the leads is, I believe, in a class far above the norm. It is inspiring and should, I believe, be aspired to. The film ends with a subtle moment of beauty so powerful that I can only describe it as a sledge-hammer to the heart. I give "Carol" my highest recommendation.

Boring, lifeless, unemotional waste of time

I really wanted to like this film because of the subject matter, the period and the potential to shine a light on the historic struggle of lesbian women in a man's world of 1950. However it was a drudgery to keep watching this film to it's anti-climatic finish. The characters were unemotional and detached. They lacked charisma, chemistry or passion even when angry, desperate and in love. So unlikable were the characters that I was unable to raise a single shred of empathy even when things were uncomfortable and unpleasant for them. This story has so much potential but it was wasted on flat performances, dull writing, and long lingering (meant to be dramatic) camera shots. The film was just plain boring, unimaginative and lifeless.
