"As its bravura filmmaking unfolds, those specifics fade and what remains are the feelings and emotions that all the best movie love stories create. And make no mistake, "Carol" belongs in that group." - Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

 

"Haynes maintains the film's temperature at a low simmer and expertly brings it to the boil, but while CAROL builds to a scene of intense eroticism, it's mostly about all the things you can't reach out and touch." - Ty Burr,Boston Globe
