Carol (2016)

This is a parody of the Haynes/Nagy film, released to ecstatic audiences in 2016, who imagined that this storyline was new: “Wealthy person exploits power dynamic to have sex with, then abandon, working class woman.”
The shocker is that this is two women! SURELY THIS MUST BECOME A FILM! Well, no.
Although the Patricia Highsmith novel might have had some allure in the 1950s, I was disappointed that Haynes, from whom I draw inspiration (his movie,”Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story”), wouldn’t see that “someone overcooked the turkey” (actual dialogue from Haynes’ version of “Carol”) and his movie was, in fact, the turkey.
