Niki and Matt were lucky enough to catch Carol at the London Film Festival this year and it has stayed with them ever since.
Carol is perhaps being easily pigeon-holed as a lesbian love story but it is in fact so much more; it is a love story for the ages. Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara superbly play two women who fall in love during the early 50s in New York.
