GIVEAWAY MAY 25


Carol DVD




Just released on DVD, this much lauded film from Todd Haynes—adapted from the Patricia Highsmith novel about a lesbian relationship in 1950s New York—features fine performances from Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara.

There’s been intriguing debate about the adaptation which some felt lost some screen potential, for example by eliminating the lovers’ road trip. Others, like our reviewer Katerina Sakkas, were not convinced by the romance nor by what was perceived as a mannered characterisation of Carol by Blanchett. Sakkas concludes, “Carol is in almost every respect polished, considered cinema, its re-creation of the human dramas playing out in a stultifying era eloquent—but where is its beating heart?”

But the film’s partnering of Highsmith and Haynes, six Oscar nominations, plenty of good reviews and many fans, judging by long screening seasons are reasons enough for you to see Carol and judge for yourself.
