At a time when there's so little worth seeing on Cable Television, I was pleasantly surprised today by movie dealing with forbidden love. "CAROL" focuses on two women who develop a romantic relationship during the ultra-conservative 1950's. Cate Blanchett gives a great performance in the title role! "Carol" is an older experienced lesbian who is dealing with a failed marriage, and an accompanying child custody battle. Rooney Mara plays the role of "Therese"; a young woman just beginning to understand her sexual identity. The two meet and a moving story of their evolving love ensues! In addition to the story line and acting being top-notch, the cinematography and direction need to be praised. This is a really well made movie -- with social relevance -- and I highly recommend seeing it. 5 Stars!!!
