A Christmas Carol

Carol - poster

When you’re halfway through a film teetering on whether or not you like it, that’s not a good sign.  But when, at the same time, you never lose interest, there’s hope.  And it’s always better when a movie starts slowly and ends strongly than the other way around.  The final act of Carol builds in quiet understated power, enough to cast everything that comes before as requisite groundwork.  8/10
