Cate Blanchett or Not Cate Blanchett?
I Still Know What You Did in Waterloo
The story that keeps giving.
“There is something essential and unshakable between Carol and Abby. And the fact that this friendship exists between two gay women in a mainstream Hollywood movie, and remains largely unmarred by drama or a romantic entanglement, is pretty damn special too.”
“Also known as ‘spiraling,’ this is the emotional comedown. Like drugs, your serotonin levels have been depleted and possibly you’re dehydrated. You’ve witnessed for maybe the first time in your life a realistic portrayal of all of those times your heart has screamed until it got short of breath and girl you are reeeeeeeling.”
Perhaps the best praise I can give Carol is that ten minutes into it, I forgot it was my job to be a critic. Twenty minutes in, I forgot I was watching a movie at all.
More and more actors are calling out Hollywood’s gender inequality, Kim Kardashian says Bruce Jenner is beautiful, feminists have had it with Game of Thrones, Mad Men flips the script on Joan and Peggy, Leisha Hailey is coming to ABC Family, and Queen Latifah doesn’t care if you didn’t like her lesbian sex scene in Bessie.
Let us mourn our loss together: the whisper of a promise of a world we never knew.
Carol is a lesbian-ish film by that up-and-coming Australian actor who has had many relationships with women or whatever, nbd.
In an interview with Variety, Blanchett says her upcoming lesbian film Carol is not her first dip in the lady pond.
