Willow Maclay’s review published on Letterboxd:
Hey folks! I saw the film and reviewed it for a great publication. Check it out
"Like someone’s old love letters or the keepsake wilted flowers of a first love, Carol has the feel of a kind of attic picture that’s been sitting and collecting dust for years, an appropriate matching of form and function. Shot on grainy 16mm, director Todd Haynes prefers a faded color palette that evokes an aged quality in the film’s images. The film feels less like an homage to the melodramas of the 1950s and more like it was actually filmed there—an observance of natural life during the period, with pervasive homophobia infiltrating every aspect of its principle characters’ lives, always ready to extinguish their happiness."
