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.
Fresh: "Carol" possesses the same quiet, catlike powers of its magnetic title character: It swirls around to ambush you ... and make you swoon.
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.
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.
