Louis: l just thought maybe it would be weird sleeping in the same place since we've both admitted that we like each other. You know?
Carol: Yeah. It is awkward sort of.
Louis: Yeah. But now that we've acknowledged it, it's not as weird, though. Right?
Carol: Yeah.

Lots to Like from Lake
31 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Nice story, an unexpected view on gender bias. There's a lot going on, but it's all connected to Carol's (Bell) struggle to carve out a career for herself. Many strong performances in small roles, including Michaela Watkins and Rob Corddry as Carol's sister and brother-in-law who have their own pressures. Bell shows a strong director's hand working with a large ensemble cast, and her writing skills made the shifting relationships between characters work.

Generally a strong directorial debut for Bell, but she also showed her inexperience on the technical side of directing, as there were scenes throughout the movie that were poorly lit (yes, it does matter: shadows are distracting to the audience).

Overall: +1
