Rating of
2.5/4 

Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara playing lesbians is enough to get anyone's mind in the gutter. However, Todd Haynes directs his adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's novel "The Price of Salt" with class but stylistically it does become cold and stale at times. The two female leads work exceptionally well together however. Rooney is appropriately doe eyed as the love struck sales clerk beguiled by a more mature elegant woman as skillfully played by Blanchett. Their chemistry is dynamite. If only the rest of the supporting cast was better developed and not relegated to the cliched roles you'd expect in a more sensationalist treatment.

Ausserhalb

1949 verfasste Patricia Highsmith die Liebesgeschichte einer schüchternen Verkäuferin und einer viel älteren Hausfrau. 1952 veröffentlicht kann man den Roman auch als Zeugnis des konformistischen Amerikas der Zeit lesen. Todd Haynes hat seine ganze Karriere damit verbracht, Konformität und Repression zu erforschen. In Carol richtet er seine Aufmerksamkeit auf die unsichtbare lesbische Subkultur während der 50er. Carol beschäftigt sich dabei mit dem schönen Schein, der Oberfläche des Menschen in Kontrast mit seiner wahren Natur. Die Dualität des menschlichen Seins. Therese (Rooney Mara) ist Verkäuferin in einem New Yorker Warenhaus. Sie hat eine Art festen Freund, doch irgendetwas in ihrem Verhalten hinter der Verkaufs-Theke verrät uns: Therese wartet... Vermutlich weiss sie selbst nicht a...

Longing for True Feelings

'Carol' is a behind-closed-doors romance upheld by two impeccably engaging lead performances and strong direction. It's as if you're transported to this time and place, viewing this slowly sizzling intimate relationship through the prism of the period. The unaccepting viewpoints from supporting characters ins't over dramatized or made to be the only obstacle between the potential lovers. Both women have their other counterparts to deal with and it's handled with more care than most movies. You do see heartbreak it causes on all sides, not just the women. Their attraction is always the focal point. I really felt their longing for each other, so much so that the film gains sufficient build-up to their first physical interaction of love. It's handled with delicacy in a tasteful manner.

Christmas Carol

"Carol" is a powerful drama set in the 1950s about a romance shared between two women. Carol Aird (Cate Blanchett) and Therese Belivet (Rooney Mara) first meet in a department store where the latter works. Soon a friendship blossoms and a tryst follows. This affair of an unconventional nature is further complicated by the fact that Carol is married to Harge Aird (Kyle Chandler), and they have a daughter.

"Carol" is accurate in its depiction of intrigue. The secret longings of retail clerks smitten by the attractive, wedding ring bearing, “taken” customers they serve is dead on. The rush of rendezvous flood the screen. The maddening jealousy as the result of betrayal, the hurt of unrequited love and the pain of rejection are all plainly visible. In fact it’s all there, flung up a...

Carol - Movie Review

Therese Belivet: "I don't know what I want. How could I know what I want if I say yes to everything?".

Carol is set in 1950s New York, a department-store clerk dreams of a better life for himself and finds himself falling for an older, married woman.

Before Carol was even release, it had a lot of Oscar talk with the two main leads and the story itself. It's one of those period piece movies that people start talking about how many awards it's going to win (It's mostly Gold Derby predictions) and not actually talking about the movie itself, only the awards and it's quite sad when I think about it. But all that a side, I've been anticipating Carol for awhile now, just because of the two main stars and the beautiful teaser trailer that got me interested in seeing it. And after...
