Carol - 3.5/5

Director Todd Haynes provides viewers with a visual adventure that will have audience's attention during all 2 hours of the film. Having said that, this sort of slow paced motion picture offers a very basic story line that lacks depth. While Cate Blanchett does give a solid performance here, it is far from brilliant compared to some of her other work. Rooney Mara was the stand out...her character Terese will have you feeling for her deeply. I guess this will be enjoyed by a certain crowd only..the arthouse type. As for the others who are not adventurous with film choice, if you don't watch won't miss out on much
