Yesterday was an historic day in the United States of America. It was the day Carol, the Greatest Lesbian Movie of All Time, was released into the wild world on DVD, Blu-ray, and OnDemand. Which means if Carol didn’t make it to your city, you can stop crying into your spinach with poached eggs and start watching Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara fall in love over and over and over again from the comfort of your own home.
Thanks to the folks at Anchor Bay Entertainment, we have five copies of Carol to give away to you! If you win, you can choose between receiving a Blu-ray or a DVD in the mail, whatever suits your fancy.
Watching Carol will be a nice respite from checking our growing encyclopedia of dead lesbian and bisexual characters on TV, because — spoiler alert! — no gay ladies die in this movie. But you already knew that; it’s one of the reasons it got snubbed by the Oscars. When you watch Carol, you will not see:
+ Lesbians flinging themselves from rooftops
+ Lesbians getting mowed down by cars
+ Lesbians bleeding out from stabbing injuries or wolf attacks
+ Lesbians ingesting poisons
+ Lesbians being overtaken by brain parasites
+ Lesbians being mauled by feral ghouls
+ Lesbians choking to death on cheese crackers
+ Lesbians struggling to get free after being tied to some train tracks
+ Lesbians getting swept up and away into tornadoes
+ Lesbians being forced out of airlocks and into black holes
The only lesbian flung from space in this movie makes it to earth just fine, thank you very much!
