America in the ‘fifties. Two women – one older, wealthy and sophisticated and on her way to a divorce, the other an ingenue shopgirl, begin a relationship. Complications inevitably arise.

There is a slow-burning interiority to the movie, and moments of incandescence that are utterly convincing.

Director: Todd Haynes. Cate Blanchette, Rooney Mara

Verdict: Still waters flow deep. Bourbon. On the rocks.
