I’ve just been to a screening in Sydney of a seriously brilliant movie, Carol.
The love between these two women in the 50s – one (Cate Blanchett) married with a small child, the other (Rooney Mara) a shop clerk & budding photographer – starts as a slow simmer – the looks, the gestures, the brushes of an arm – but explodes into one of the most exquisite & stylishly erotic, sensual & liberating of films.
Dare you not to come out of it feeling raw, emotional, and even more excited by the complexities & pure joy of true love.
Yes. I totally adored it!
Should score lots of awards as the season kicks into gear.
Carol opens in Australia January 14.
