If you haven’t yet seen Carol, Todd Hayes’ critically acclaimed, award-winning feature that controversially had no wins out of its six nominations at the 2016 Oscars, it is paramount that you check out what all the fuss is about. Starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara in among the strongest performances of their respective careers, the film follows the burgeoning relationship between the glamorous Carol and more introvert Therese. The women’s relationship becomes increasingly intimate, but they find difficulty in expressing themselves and finding acceptance against the backdrop of 1950s New York. Carol is stunningly photographed and emotively performed by all involved, the cast also including Kyle Chandler and Sarah Paulson.
