    ★★½

    Omg. The only thing more annoying than the person breathing so heavily a couple seats down from me was this actual movie. 

    Rooney Mara was so expressive and I have no idea how she grew out her hair so long after Carol. Extensions???

Some great performances by the leads: Emma Stone and Steve Carell. Not much more to say, except that people were smoking all the time in a nod, nod, wink, wink manner from the filmmakers.
