Category: #2 An LGBT film
Again, I’m going to leave out the date watched so we can get through these a bit quicker. Besides, it’s been quite a while since I watched this one.
As soon as I heard about Carol I was sure I was going to watch it. In part because it’s an LGBT film and in part because I love Cate Blanchett.
I’m not quite sure what I was expecting from this movie though. I think it did kind of deliver despite that. It’s a little bit melancholy a little bit coming of age (in your 20’s) and also a little bit romantic.
The relationship between these two is a little bit strange though and I think maybe that’s because there’s just not a lot in the way of chemistry between them even though they both did a great job in their parts.
I do think it did a great job of exploring the realization that there’s something not quite right in your life and doing something to try and fix that.
