About the Movie

A young woman in her 20s, Therese Belivet (Rooney Mara), is a clerk working in a Manhattan department store and dreaming of a more fulfilling life when she meets Carol (Cate Blanchett), an alluring woman trapped in a loveless, convenient marriage. As an immediate connection sparks between them, the innocence of their first encounter dims and their connection deepens.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Haynes maintains the film's temperature at a low simmer and expertly brings it to the boil, but while "Carol" builds to a scene of intense eroticism, it's mostly about all the things you can't reach out and touch. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Jan 3, 2016

Fresh: "Carol" possesses the same quiet, catlike powers of its magnetic title character: It swirls around to ambush you ... and make you swoon. – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, Dec 24, 2015

Fresh: This is about two people who didn't know what their lives were until they met each other, then scrambling, in their muted, buttoned-up way, to figure out what happens next. Haynes loves them so much that he believes they can. You will too. – Will Leitch, The New Republic, Dec 31, 2015

Fresh: Will love conquer all? Probably not. The bigger question is whether it will endure. The lush, beautifully acted and shot "Carol" answers this with a sweet smile. – Tom Long, Detroit News, Dec 25, 2015
