“Cate Blanchett gives an incandescent lead performance”

VARIETY, Justin Chang

“Carol is less a movie about a particular relationship than it is a broader testament to the nobility of coming out, the struggle and dignity and value in it.”

VANITY FAIR, Richard Lawson

“This love story…aches with the quiet longing of both its characters…”

SCREENDAILY, Tim Grierson

“There’s Only One Word to Describe Todd Haynes’ ‘Carol’: Flawless”

FLAVORWIRE, Jason Bailey

“Rooney Mara and Cate Blanchett capture the gorgeousness of falling in love in Carol.”

REFINERY 29, Esther Zuckerman

“A loaded dance of desire.”

TIMEOUT (London), Dave Calhoun

“Made of crystal and suppressed tears, shot eternally through windows and mirrors and half-closed doors, Todd Haynes' "Carol" is a love story that starts at a trickle, swells gradually to a torrent, and finally bursts the banks of your heart.”

THE PLAYLIST, Jessica Kiang

“Blanchett does another supernatural act of transformation.”

VANITY FAIR, Richard Lawson

“a masterpiece”

EVENING STANDARD, David Sexton

“One of America’s great film-makers has returned in galloping triumph.”

THE IRISH TIMES, Donald Clarke

“Haynes crafts a tender, devastating romance but also surveys a battleground of power and control.”

BFI / SIGHT & SOUND, Isabel Stevens

“In a sly and subversive fashion, Haynes again lays bare the tensions in a society which refuses to acknowledge “difference” of any sort.”

INDEPENDENT, Geoffrey Macnab

“Perhaps the greatest compliment you could pay Carol is that it contains – to this writer – one of the most perfectly executed and poignant utterances of the words “I love you” in screen history.”

LITTLE WHITE LIES, David Jenkins

“Haynes’ period is intrinsically detailed – founded upon the utmost intelligence and artistry.”

MOVIE MARKER, Chris Haydon

“A testament to Blanchett’s deeply intelligent portrayal”

SCREENDAILY, Tim Grierson

“Carol speaks to the power of finding your reflection in another person, and how it can lead to self-actualization.”

REFINERY 29, Esther Zuckerman

“The experience of watching Carol is not only startlingly overwhelming, but utterly transporting.”

MOVIE MARKER, Chris Haydon

“Carol” ends on a triumphant note of emotional clarity that, for all its frozen-in-time period restraint, speaks stirringly and unmistakably to the present moment.”

VARIETY, Justin Chang

“The immeasurable magnitude of Todd Haynes’ latest is quite frankly remarkable. It is that rare film that feels timely and classic in equal measure; a Sirkian symphony that sweeps and swells.
