    Love how Cate and Rooney played their characters. The silence and exchanged gazes in the film speak so much volume of the romance between them. The music is also very good, goes very well with the intimacy and the tense of these two people in love. must watch! It's a shame Cate didn't win an Oscar for this.

    Even though I do not have a natural attraction to the two main characters, the movie is so close to perfection in so many regards that it makes it an absolute must-watch in my opinion. The main actresses deliver outstanding performance, the photography is masterful and the soundtrack was so immersive and brilliantly crafted.

    This is a poignant movie. Well acted. If you're not a gay woman, I can see where some people would think it drags. The 50's were a different era and being gay was seen as anathema the zeitgeist is different now, and this film is adept at capturing the taboo of being gay. I was relieved that the movie ended on a promising, although, somewhat measured note, a suggestion that there would be a happy ending. Cate Blanchett did a fabulous job here. Everyone did.

    Favorite movie, everything is so perfectly and artistically done, the scenarios, the soundtrack, the actresses; it amazingly represented the L in the LGBT community.

    Just watched it for a second time to see if I could find anything about this film that I like. I cannot. Even with such talent in front of the camera, I found it pretentious, agonisingly slow, and compellingly dreary. Todd Haines obviously thinks all you need to tell a story is to have period detail and endless long, moody pauses. No. This is yet another attempt of his to do something meaningful that simply fails to possess any dramatic effect.
