No big coming out scene, no "everybody's going to think I'm weird", no freaking out, no death (most importantly no suicide!), no sad ending, just two women falling in love. We are in need of more queer movies like this! I hope it wins the awards it deserves.
It's not sensationalized or forced, but it isn't very exciting either
A heartfelt addition to Todd Haynes' oeuvre, with strong performances by the dual leads of Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara. I thought the use of period was a poignant way to set the right tone for what this movie attempts to accomplish, and I appreciated that this was a romance done with subtlety in an era of romance movies with no subtlety at all.
