Haynes’ latest excavates a tale of lesbian desire in 1950s Manhattan. Carol (Blanchett) trapped in a loveless marriage catches the eye of a young clerk (Mara) in a swanky department store. With “a mood of mournful romance, half nostalgic and half ominous, that never lets go…Carol is one of the greatest American screen romances of any era, period.” (Salon.com)
