Critic Reviews of "Carol"GrantlandAugust 16, 2016
This is a slender movie that Haynes gives plenty of antique atmosphere.The AtlanticJanuary 15, 2016
Haynes taps into universal anxieties about love and relationships without ever letting go of the sense of imprisonment that came with being gay in the 1950s.Boston GlobeJanuary 03, 2016
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.Chicago ReaderDecember 29, 2015
As a love story this left me unsatisfied, though I enjoyed the lush period trappings and the flattering sense of how enlightened I am compared to people in the 1950s.San Diego ReaderDecember 25, 2015
The lesbian affair at its heart is rendered with intelligence and care, and if there are speeches to be made, they are happily few, and far more personal than political.SFistMarch 23, 2017
So enraptured was I by the look of the movie, I was almost able to overlook the fact that we don't actually get a lot of dialogue between the two women.ComplexFebruary 27, 2017
To call Carol a Christmas miracle feels like a gaudy understatement, but that's sort of exactly what it is.Film InquiryFebruary 24, 2017
A film for anybody who has ever fallen in and out of love, dealing with hopeless infatuation and the slow transition to the messy reality that all but threatens to burn out the initial spark, Carol is more than just a gorgeously crafted period piece.The Mary SueJanuary 10, 2017
What Haynes gets so perfectly right with this film really is the very specific sense of time and place.Salt Lake TribuneJanuary 10, 2017
Everything is so perfectly beautiful in Carol, director Todd Haynes' '50s melodrama, that it more closely resembles a museum diorama than a movie -- until its luminous stars, Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, breathe life and passion into it.MovieFreak.comAugust 16, 2016
The smile of recognition and understanding that closes things out is an unforgettable celebratory stunner that shook me right to my very core.
