Still from Carol (2015).

Utterly and breathtakingly enchanting, Carol is a carefully paced masterwork. Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara are perfect: bringing their own poise and craft to the wonderfully understated emotional whirlwinds of their flawed but magnificently humane characters. The production design, editing, background score: everything trickles in unobtrusively, supplying the unhurried narration with a calm sense of devastating power.

What a film this is. Those images will be stuck in my head for a very long time, and I’m a better person for it. Hauntingly beautiful.
