Reviews:
"Set in New York City in the early ’50s, the film is a gorgeous time capsule capturing the manners and mores of America at the start of the conservative Eisenhower era, bristling with a pair of lead performances that stand among the year’s best." -- Grade: A- - 11/12/2015 Entertainment Weekly


"Haynes has pulled off something remarkable here, without a trace of winking or archness. It’s been a long time since the movies have seen a fuse of pure ardor burn this slowly and steadily, leading to such an unexpectedly moving explosion of resolve." - 11/19/2015 A.V. Club


"Impeccably acted by Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara as the women in question, with an exquisite look captured by cinematographer Ed Lachman..." - 11/19/2015 Los Angeles Times


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Haynes films all of this with his exquisite eye for detail....The color palette is a wash of light greens, deep pinks, gleaming gold, with pale tail-finned gas guzzlers roaring down empty roads." - 11/20/2015 RogerEbert.com


"CAROL is a study in human magnetism, in the physics and optics of eros. With sparse dialogue and restrained drama, the film is a symphony of angles and glances, of colors and shadows." - 11/19/2015 New York Times


4 stars out of 5 -- "The film is measured and restrained and as muted as its autumnal colour palette but the little moments -- the silences, the looks, the longing -- build and build, to power a freight train of feeling." - 11/20/2015 Empire


5 stars out of 5 -- "Haynes’ movie is a ravishing seduction in a vintage mould: stealthy, swooning cinema to relish." - 11/23/2015 Total Film


4 stars out of 4 -- "[A] romantic spellbinder that cuts deep. It's one of the year's very best films." - 11/08/2015 Rolling Stone


"[E]legant and quietly powerful....This is a beautiful film, bathed in tones that give off a nostalgic, 1950s vibe." - 12/23/2015 Chicago Sun-Times


"Todd Haynes' way of injecting academic, sexually revisionist and aesthetically studied perspectives into semi-mainstream entertainment reaches its point of greatest consistency and accessibility in this artistically well-judged and culturally well-timed adaptation..." - 12/11/2015 Hollywood Reporter


"CAROL, an adaptation of a 1952 novel by Patricia Highsmith directed by Todd Haynes, sweeps the viewer up into a heady, exquisitely choreographed dream, casting as beguiling a spell as its seductive title character." - 12/24/2015 Washington Post
