Manhattan, 1952: young department store clerk and aspiring photographer Therese (Mara) meets sophisticated older woman Carol (Blanchett), and feels inexplicably giddy. Achingly beautiful, slow-burning study of lesbian romance and female strength in the face of adversity, with outstanding performances from Blanchett and Mara. Exceptional filmmaking.
