Cannes 2015: 'Carol' Review

The most anticipated film at this year's Cannes was probably Carol, the new movie from director Todd Haynes (Safe, Far From Heaven). Does it live up to expectations? Almost, which is not to say it isn't a real beauty. Cate Blanchett is especially terrific as the titular housewife engaged in a secret love affair with a much younger woman (Rooney Mara). My review is up at Screen International.
