Rave reviews are greeting “Carol” in advance of its New York Film Festival screening Friday.
Flavorwire calls it “flawless” and “gorgeous,” with “astonishing” performances. The Village Voice gushes about Todd Haynes’ direction.
Haynes' work “has never been more assured, defined by silken camera work and expert framing that conveys his characters’ loneliness. … ‘Carol’ offers a mature portrait of love struggling to materialize, and survive, in a disapproving society,” the Voice says.
