Haynes' Carol: a sublime melodrama w/ exquisite contribs from every department. Blanchett & Mara surely up for acting honours #Cannes2015

CAROL just shattered my heart into a thousand pieces. Subtle, beautiful, brilliant.

CAROL: All I wanted and more -- like stepping into a Hopper painting and finding a devastating romance unfolding in the dark corners.

Todd Haynes' Carol with Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara is absolutely gorgeous #Cannes2015
Robbie Collin ‏@robbiereviews
It's a little bit hard to process just how heart-bulldozingly great Carol is at the moment. #Cannes2015
Kyle Buchanan ‏@kylebuchanan
The #1 Oscar nod I'd like to see from CAROL is actually composer Carter Burwell, who has somehow NEVER BEEN NOMINATED BEFORE

"Carol" is sublime. But I suspect the audience for Ilive Kitteridge is about the same size as this one. Both Mara & Blanchett great. #Cannes
Richard Lawson ‏@rilaws
CAROL is gorgeous and beautifully acted. Smaller in scale in some ways than I thought it would be, but powerful in its way.
Peter Bradshaw ‏@PeterBradshaw1
Todd Haynes's Carol is an amour fou which plays out with sanity and generosity. #Cannes2015

Man in front of me yelled "bravo" at end of Carol. Have to agree. Swoon. Wow. Loved.
Sasha Stone ‏@AwardsDaily
Rooney's movie as much as Blanchett's. Exceptional in every respect.

Carol is a bit slow and bumpy but it really comes around in the end. Blanchett? Like you have to ask...#Cannes2015

Could this beat BITWC's reception from some years ago? Lazy comparison due the film's theme aside, this is having a lot of raves.

It would be awesome if Carol won the Palme d'Or, but you never really know even if you base it off the reactions.

Some reviews are out, and they follow the same path of the first reactions.

Or maybe Blanchett and Mara will win Best Actress.

But that is a question to ask; who's the lead actress and who's supporting?

Or we can let this just be a film on its own first without needing awards to validate its worth.

It's very likely. So far only 5 films have been screened. 14 films have yet to be screened (included the heavyweights of Jia, Hou, Sorrentino, Audiard and Trier)
