Carolling

Today is the day. Today is the day I am FINALLY going to go see “Carol.” This weekend was the first rollout of the film past its New York and Los Angeles opening cities. According to reports, the expansion will continue ever so slowly, with more locations not being added until Christmas Day. [You can see a list of U.S. city release dates here and international city release dates here.] The Carol website also has a ticket finder, which isn’t terribly helpful right now if you aren’t in NY, LA or SF. But, hopefully, soon. I will freely admit that I do not understand the reason for this agonizingly slow release schedule, unless it’s just to torture gay ladies across the globe. But I can only keep the faith that the wait will be worth the reward. I’ll let you know soon. Until then, please allow “Invite me around” to become your go-to pick-up line.

E.T.A. Yep, it really happened. It really, really happened.

Oh please do share your thoughts on it once you've seen it. I simply cannot wait for your review. This film will not disappoint - it is stunningly beautiful.

Helena: sorry to burst your bubble, but Carol is a Ster Kinekor Cinema Nouveau release, and is only showing at 4 cinemas, 2 in Capetown, one in JHB, and one in DBN. Also, the run is expected to be short, shows will close before or during the first week of February (this is code for "We're limiting it because we don't really approve, even though we're supposed to show 'art house' films.") So I hope you can get to one of those theatres soon. I've seen Carol already, and I want EVERYONE to see it.

What else can we say about our beloved country, but EISH!

Yeah, I think there is as much of a build up to actually be able to SEE this movie as there seems to be for Carol and Therese to kiss IN the movie. I know the pay off will be worth it, but jfc, this wait....
