| Gorgeous yet Subtle
Visually, this is a stunning film. The cinematography, sets, and costume design were clearly well thought out and well executed. As for the acting, in my opinion Cate Blanchett gives a solid and convincing performance; there were moments when I only saw Carol and not the actress. Rooney Mara also gives a good performance, but it did not feel as genuine as Blanchett's. The supporting cast (Sarah Paulson, Kyle Chandler) also did well with the little time they were shown onscreen. In my opinion none of the dialogue felt unconvincing in any scene. I believe the characters would be more likable had they been given slightly more development. It is a good story, but definitely feels like there's something lacking. However, I suppose the subtly of the situations portrayed and how the characters react to them adds an element of realism. Overall, there is no such thing as a perfect film. Carol is solid and well made, but could definitely be improved story-wise.
