An adaptation from Patricia Highsmith’s novel by the same title, Carol tells us the romantic story between a wealthy married woman and a young girl working in a department store. Haynes captures with superb subtlety the repressed emotions in mid-century America. The aesthetics are gorgeous and the acting beautifully nuanced. Sandy Powell, who holds three Oscars for her work as Costume Designer, sets the glamorous allure of the wealthy socialite as well as the delicate elegance of the young girl.
