"Carol" is a beautiful film.Director Todd Haynes, his team and his formidable leads Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara have birthed that rare, precious creation where the substance, the story and the emotions all stand on equal footing to the film's loveliness – easily making it one of the year's best.Carol sees Therese too, and they hold each other's gaze for a wistful moment.Therese is a girl-woman, styled, in some cases overtly, to look like Audrey Hepburn in the 1950s.There are some distracting oddities, including Carrie Brownstein in a very minor role, despite prominent screen credit and Carter Burwell's score, which sounds distinctly like a Philip Glass composed-original, but those are minor quibbles in an otherwise splendidly realized film.Period movies often can't escape the era in which they're made.
