We saw Carol, with Best Actress (Cate Blanchett) and Best Supporting Actress (Rooney Mara) nominees for the Oscars, and boy, what a movie it is! I'm really surprised it wasn't nominated for Best Picture, because it's just wonderful. We both sat there stunned at the very moving ending. It's set in the early 1950s and the costumes and period were perfect. Alex Doenau in his review of the movie, summed it up for me:
Carol is a snow globe of a movie: an ornate and delicate piece, frozen in time. Lavishly designed and performed with precision, it’s a love story that deserves to endure.I hope that everyone has a chance to see it. I'd love to hear what my readers think of it. Now it's time to read this over, review, and hit publish.
