After reading all of the glowing reviews I was really intrigued to watch this film. Whilst I can appreciate the high quality filming/producing/acting I found it incredibly slow. It didn't keep me interested at all. I actually fell asleep and had to finish watching it the next night. Disappointed :(

A love story but also a period piece. Love does not surprise even with the air of the forbidden. The real drama is over the custody of the child and that isn't part of this Highsmith interpretation. That is what makes this love more poignant ? Complication ? Rooney Mara like Hepburn and perhaps Cate Blanchett like Shirley Maclean in 'The Children's Hour' (a superior movie for the hysteria); this was a slow burn movie that lacked conviction but oozed style. Perhaps just a gay cliche too far. I like the director but not the story.

Utter drivel

Then do watch this movie. A poignant, incredibly touching picture. Never vulgar, always accurate. The “I love you” Cate Blanchet utters at the very end of the movie in her plead to Therese will break your heart and give you shivers. That one scene, that one line, reminds you more than any love scene ever could what it means and how it feels to be truly in love.

I've seen it twice at the theatre when it was released a few weeks ago and it will definitely be a no-brainer that I will be buying this copy too. Gorgeous romance drama with two of Hollywood's best actresses of all time and a highly capable director at the helm. Where could it possibly go wrong? Answer: None. This movie will definitely go on to be a classic after it has sweeped all the awards, I guarantee it.

I've read so much about this film before its release so when I watched it for the first time, I already got an idea about how the story will be told but still Cate Blanchett's acting is so powerfully obsessive that it kept me thinking about it days later. I will watch it again. Rooney Mara also has done a great job portraying Therese as an awkward 19-year-old still confused and trying to find out who she wants to be. Actually there are some scenes that Therese's innocence is so cute, it made me just wonder how would anyone not fall in love with her?? Impossible. Their performances are superb for sure and explain so much the chemistry that they shared in the film. It felt so genuine. Beautifully crafted. Thanks for the whole team of production and director Todd Haynes. Amazing work!
