MOVIE REVIEW: CAROL
Topic: Visual Media


CAROL
LESBIAN LOVE IN THE 1950'S
 
 
 

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!!!
