Carol ★★★★

It's remarkable how many hallmarks of a Christmas movie this has without making itself a feelgood, sappy, corny Christmas movie:

* Set around Christmas and New Years, mostly.
* Trains.
* Gift giving.
* Wintry scenes.
* Lesbian sex.
* A parent doing everything she can for her child.
* A rich person becoming more human.
* A happy ending.

Anyway, merry Christmas, everyone.
