In an adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's seminal novel The Price of Salt, CAROL follows two women from very different backgrounds who find themselves in an unexpected love affair in 1950s New York. As conventional norms of the time challenge their undeniable attraction, an honest story emerges to reveal the resilience of the heart in the face of change. A young woman in her 20s, Therese Belivet (Rooney Mara), is a clerk working in a Manhattan department store and dreaming of a more fulfilling life when she meets Carol (Cate Blanchett), an alluring woman trapped in a loveless, convenient marriage. As an immediate connection sparks between them, the innocence of their first encounter dims and their connection deepens. While Carol breaks free from the confines of marriage, her husband (Kyle Chandler) begins to question her competence as a mother as her involvement with Therese and close relationship with her best friend Abby (Sarah Paulson) come to light.

A lesbian couple, after their marriage is effectively put on hold due to their child's death, are faced with another difficult decision when the baby is born. Directed by and starring Jennifer Connelly, "Carol" is an attractive and poignant film with a distinct style that certainly draws the viewer into the film's themes. The film's setting, an orphanage for a girl with a severe brain injury, is certainly evocative of that period of history when homosexuality was not considered a crime and many persons felt at ease with it. The film does however, suffer from an insufficient length. It would have been nice to have explored more of the adult characters' feelings about the child's death, as there was a lot of detail given to the female characters, but we are left with too little time to develop any of them. There are also some questions about the film's moral choice to show the child's death. The way that the child's death was presented to the family was harsh, and probably one of the worst decisions made by the family. Overall, a good film that does not live up to the standards of many other recent gay films.

Carol is a tale of a year that runs from the end of World War II until the beginning of the Korean War. It takes place in two stages. The first one sees the death of a young boy who was the last child born in the Netherlands during the war. We follow the year he is born, through his birth, his death, and his birth and death again. His father is a gentle man and is content to let his child do the work, while he loves his wife and enjoys his role as a father. Then, about a year later, his wife is murdered by the Korean military and he is forced to leave the country. Now, with his wife gone, he is forced to deal with the consequences of his actions. He gets the help of an old man and his son, but he still doesn't know how to deal with the feelings of having to leave his wife behind. As a father he has a lot to deal with, but he has to try and work out his feelings. As a man he has a lot to deal with, but he has to try and work out his feelings. The same goes for his son. The movie is wonderful and extremely moving. I can't say much more than that. The best thing about this film is that the emotions that the characters are feeling are well-realized. The story is told with a lot of realism. The only problem with the movie is that it is quite long. It is sometimes too long, but that's not the main problem. The main problem is that the story is told in two different stages, one that is quite beautiful and wonderful, and one that is somewhat depressing and sad. For me, the first part of the movie was very good, but the second part became a bit boring. However, the whole thing was great. The acting is great, especially by Rooney Mara and Ethan Hawke. It is a great movie and definitely worth watching.

Many movies are much better when they are viewed in the context of the director's own life. This is one of those movies. The film is a fictional account of the director's life from the late 1950's to the late 1970's. This time period is the most popular period for movies in which the director, of course, is the protagonist. Thus, this is a story about a man who has been involved in several projects, but has always lacked direction. He writes a fictional movie about the life of his muse and so it appears to be about him. But the two stories are actually connected by a love affair that has been ongoing for years. This movie will appeal to those who like their romantic films to be like a straight-forward story. For me, the plot was good and so was the acting. The performances of Meryl Streep, Paul Giamatti, and Martin Sheen were all good. All three were very good, even better than I expected. I didn't think that Meryl Streep's performance would be that good, but I was wrong. Meryl Streep's performance is a little over-the-top at times, but I think that it fits the character and the situation well. She is a fine actress, and this role was good for her. Paul Giamatti, well, I think that this role was good for him, too. He plays the husband of the woman that Streep's character has fallen for. However, he is not as good as the rest of the actors. He is a good actor, and he does a good job with what he has to work with. Martin Sheen is one of my favorite actors. He is a very good actor and I think he is underrated, but I think that he is underrated. He is very good in this role. But I was disappointed with his performance. He was not good enough. I think that his character was not believable and I think that it could have been better. The screenplay is a little over-the-top. I think that it could have been better if the movie was not about this movie. It is about something else and it is hard to understand what is going on. There were a couple of times when I thought that the movie was going to end and then it continued. In general, this is a good movie. It is not great, but it is good.

I will say that I was impressed with how the movie connected the stories, but I did find it rather dry. The one thing I felt I did not like was the time that elapsed in the film. When the end came, I felt it was really rushed. Some of the shots seemed to be meant to be set up to the time it was going to be. The director was good at keeping it moving and being realistic. I was also impressed with the use of the doll and the story line was very compelling. I think it would be more interesting if they had a few more scenes. I think the first one would have been a little much, and the last one was just plain boring. I think they could have cut out a few of the boring scenes. I think the director and the actors did a good job. I was impressed by how well they made the connection between the two stories, and I thought the characters were well played. I thought the ending was good, and I liked the director's use of the doll.

I was really disappointed with the ending of this movie. The good parts are the scenes between the mother and her child. When I first watched this movie, I thought that the parents would be the ones who did not know the secrets of the world. But when I watched this movie again, I realized that the father's character is very complicated and the father is not good at all. The mother is the one who is not good at all. When I think of this movie, I don't think of the mother. I think of the father. I think of the human heart.

Cameron Diaz plays a lonely widow who gets an unexpected visitor - a woman who claims to be a member of a secret society. Not only is Diaz in a role that requires her to channel her inner-life in some way, but she's also the one who deserves all the praise for a character that's in many ways one of her best. Not only is she very competent as a lead, she's also very beautiful. Not a lot of people know about her, but she is one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. If she's not beautiful, she's extremely sexy. In this film, her character isn't the woman who tries to be alone with her cat and her dead father's ashes, but she's the woman who's only looking for love. A woman who wants to be loved, even though she's alone. A woman who, in the end, needs to say goodbye to someone. A woman who's determined to see her son again, even though she knows he won't come back. Even if she isn't supposed to, there's no way Diaz can not succeed in portraying this character. She does, and it's the only way to make the film truly convincing. If this was an "I don't know anything about" role, Diaz would be in a different film. However, in a film where the main character is someone who is required to develop an idea, Diaz's performance doesn't come across as that of someone who needs to be constantly reined in. She does a good job of being a mother, and it's a role that would require her to let go. She's capable of playing this role with a lot of emotion, but it's the character that she portrays that really makes her seem like a very accomplished actress. Cameron Diaz is one of the most accomplished actresses in the world, and she's a woman who's capable of acting in many different genres. This is her best film, and it's also her best role. All in all, it's a very good movie.

I'd like to say that this movie was as good as "A Quiet Place", but that would be wrong. This movie is for the true romantic. It was great to see Tilda Swinton, whose reputation is forever cemented in a classic of the genre. It's a romance, a love story, a mystery, a satire, an adventure, and, most of all, a statement about the power of love. The acting was fine, and the direction was sublime. The only thing I didn't like was that the ending was rushed. But that's why I give this movie a 7, it's not perfect. This is one of the best movies of the year.

Very good story, but the ending was a bit of a letdown. I would have liked to have seen more of the relations between the two men. The ending is good but could have been better. It was a good movie and the acting was great.

There are few movies that I would rather watch than others. Carol is one of them. Carol is one of those films that I am willing to watch again and again. It's great to see the likes of Meryl Streep and Rosamund Pike in a film and especially when they are supporting cast. Their chemistry is great. The story is great and the cinematography is superb. It's very easy to watch and feels very real. A must see!

It's one of the best movies I've ever seen. Although, there are some faults, there are enough things about it to make it a 10. When you're in the mood for a romantic movie, I recommend this one. I also recommend it to anyone who wants to see a good movie. The movie stars an actress and her boyfriend, who is a photographer. They both fall in love with the same girl, which turns out to be another woman. You can tell that this movie is just a drama, but I really think it's a drama worth watching. It's really a good movie. It's the kind of movie that you should watch at least once, and you'll probably like it more than once. If you like romantic movies, this one's definitely worth watching. I think you'll like it.

This is an excellent movie. It is true that it is very different from the other Hitchcock films. It is also true that the way Hitchcock uses the camera to depict this story is quite different from other directors. Hitchcock is just another type of director. I am sure that you will love this movie. It is not easy to like this movie, but you must be patient. This is a "mystery" movie. I give it an 8 out of 10.

I will be brief and avoid giving any spoilers, as this is a film that deserves to be watched and experienced. This is not a film that I have seen before. I have not even heard of it before today. So I was pleasantly surprised to find out that it was made by a couple of people with a passion for the subject matter. And the acting is truly excellent. As Carol loses her faith, she finds herself in a familiar place. Something that is often more than we can handle, is the acceptance of the self as "the bad thing" in the face of all that is good and beautiful in our lives. As the story progresses, we learn that Carol's faith has become a means of coping with the loss of her father, who died in an accident. As Carol realizes that she has become a recluse, she decides that her life will only be worth living if she does not share it with anyone. As the years pass, Carol starts to grow increasingly isolated from the people in her life. Eventually, she decides to end her own life. I am not going to say anything more about this film, but I would recommend that anyone with a love of great art, or someone who is searching for a film that will make them see the beauty of life, see this film. It is an amazing film, that I believe will be praised by many people for its incredible acting and the story itself.

What I really liked about this movie was that it was not "what I expected". It had some wonderful things that I hadn't expected, and some things that I did expect. It is a good movie to watch on a cold, rainy evening. It makes me think, but not in a bad way. It is a good movie to watch with a good group of friends. I think that if you go in with the idea of what you are going to see, you will enjoy it a lot. This movie was well directed, well acted, and well written. If you like a good movie that you can see again and again, then you will like this movie.

This is the story of the main character, Carol. Carol is a small girl who has lived all her life in a small town. She does not speak any other languages than English. She lives in a small house with her mother, sister, and a couple of neighbors. Carol meets a man, James, who tells her that she has a "great chance" for a better life. She goes to work as a maid, and in the mean time, gets an inheritance from her father. This inheritance, she believes, will allow her to live a normal life. James and his friends are just about to leave, and they promise to return to their own home and Carol and James will spend the rest of their lives together. Unfortunately, things go wrong. James, with the help of his friends, steals Carol's car and tries to steal the inheritance, but Carol is able to stop them, but only for a short while. The movie tells the story of how James and Carol find each other and how Carol must find a way to make her life go on. The characters are well portrayed, and the whole film has a very good pace, as the story takes place in the very near future. The only negative thing I can say about this film is the use of "remakes". The original (Curse of the Werewolf, etc.) was released in 1975, and the remake was released in 1995. These two movies are completely different in every way. They are very different films in that they show different parts of the same story. I would say that the movie is much better than the original. Also, I can't understand why the remake was released first. It looks like the original was released first. This movie is definitely worth seeing. I rate this film 7/10.

I'm a big fan of Faye Dunaway. She was wonderful in Tootsie, The Farmer, The Playmate, and The Mother. She's not as strong as Bresson in this movie. Her character in this movie is more in tune with the "Art of the B Movie" than with the "Art of the Broadway" as she was so good in her Oscar winning roles. There is something of a weak link in this movie. We see her at her worst. She looks more and more like an ugly doll in this movie. There are a few very effective scenes, but they are just not enough to keep the movie going. This is a really good movie and has some terrific performances.

It is very rare to see such an excellent picture on the big screen, and "Cathy" is just that. I first saw "Cathy" when I was in college and it was one of my favorites, so I saw it again several years later. This time, I was not in college and I was not really into this movie, so I didn't really get the full effect of it. But, I still think that it was really good. I remember that it was really good and I enjoyed it as a student, so I was very disappointed when I saw it again at home and when I bought the DVD. I do think that it's a great movie that could have been a little better if it had been better directed, better written and better acted. But it still is a very good film. Although, I do think that the cinematography and camera work was better on the DVD. If you are a college student or if you have a girlfriend, this is a good movie to watch with them. It's not a bad movie at all.

Before viewing this film, I was very curious to see if it was the same story as The Revenant, and I have to say that it was, in almost every way. I like how the director managed to keep the story on a small scale, but still keep the audience entertained with the action. It was also very interesting to see how the story moved along from one point of view to another. I am not going to give anything away, but I think that it was very effective. I also enjoyed the fact that the story actually ended on a down note. I think that the ending was perfect. Overall, I was very impressed with this movie. I can see why it is doing well, and I can understand why it is doing poorly. I would recommend this movie to anyone, but I would suggest that if you want to see a more dramatic version of the story, you should watch something like The Martian.

This film is very intriguing and very personal. It has been well received and is a beautiful piece of art. It has a fascinating story and it has a fantastic cast. All the actors are very good, particularly the two leads, Julianne Moore and Michael Fassbender. Fassbender is simply fantastic, playing a world-weary man who was on his way to his daughter's wedding, when he got lost in a little country town. Moore was good as well as Maggie Gyllenhaal, although I'm sure the audience will know how it will end. All of the supporting actors are good too, and their scenes were more focused and added to the film. However, the biggest surprise is what I consider a misfire for me. It is simply amazing how some of the characters reacted to the events that they were supposed to be reacting to. There were many scenes in which the characters were seemingly stuck in a reality that was incredibly different to the actual world they lived in. They were able to make the transition from reality to the film very well, but they did not seem to understand that they were in a film, and that it was more than just a one scene, one performance. I was really surprised that this film was such a failure at the box office. I wonder if it was because the film was so different, or if it was simply because the actors were not fully prepared for what they were asked to do. I think I'd like to see it again, and I'm sure that it would be very interesting to watch again, so that I could be prepared for any situations that I could have seen. It was a fine film, and one that I would recommend.

I think the best thing to say about this movie is that it is totally original. This movie is the story of a woman whose husband has disappeared. In her search for him she meets a woman who lives in a rural town. They get to know each other well and both become involved in the story of a woman who was known to be a witch. The two women are in love and try to get together. The movie is pretty realistic and I was very much surprised that I didn't see any spoilers in this movie. It was very good and I think that the story could have been made better. I would give this movie a 7 out of 10. It is an original movie that I would recommend to everyone.

I was so excited to see this movie, and I was a little disappointed. I felt it was a little too long, and I didn't feel the connection between the characters. But the film was good overall. It was well acted and the scenes where they are driving around were very exciting. This movie is definitely worth seeing, but I would not say that it is a "must see". If you like thrillers, you should definitely see it. I gave it a 7 out of 10.

There are movies that come along once in a while that become indelibly imprinted on your brain, with a special significance that doesn't fit into any category. This movie fits into that category. It's a rare one, and it has an exceptional cast. The plot is not all that unique, but the chemistry of the actors and the cinematography in this film is perfect. The way that the two love stories are intertwined is done quite well. And of course, the music is one of the most original sounds I have ever heard in a movie. I just can't imagine another movie that matches the passion and elegance of this movie. It is one of those rare movies that stands out in a sea of mediocrity. 8.5/10

Okay, so you've seen it all before and want to see something different, like in the original. Great idea, great acting, great dialogue, great cinematography, great script. Then you come along and you say to yourself "I want to do this better than the original, and I will!". I would say that it is a very good film, however the way it is shown, the camera angle, the music (they're supposed to be 'beats', but in the original it was just really loud, whereas here it's just beautiful) and the use of the white walls and tiles is a little too much. It also takes some time to get going, and it does start to get boring towards the end. It's not a bad film, just a little bit too long. I would recommend watching the original first, it's not as good as the film version, but it's better than this. A bit on the poor side, but I thought it was good. 7/10
