Movies Watched -- Carol

Added on by C. Maoxian.

Lesbian love story set in the early 1950s. Cate Blanchett plays a rich lady and Mara Rooney, Rooney Mara plays Audrey Hepburn playing a shopgirl. More gay propaganda from Hollywood (Todd Haynes directed), but stylishly done and not badly written. 118 minutes so at least 20 to 30 minutes too long. Had some funny scenes with various dykes leering at Rooney Mara, er, Audrey. Poor Carrie Brownstein / Syd Feldman once again cast as a lesbian in the final scene.  Didn't fast forward so it gets a yellow rating (consider). If you want to see a really good movie about lesbian love, I can recommend Blue Is the Warmest Color, one of my top ten movies from a previous year.
