From a queer pint of view
I'm not writing a usual review of the movie. I'm writing from the queer point of view. And there are maybe spoilers in my review.
I gave this movie a ten out of ten. Why? Because the storytelling for a LGBTQ* is so real. I'm to young to remember the 50s, I wasn't born at this time. But some things are still the same: How do you find find out that the other one is also interested in the same gender? Yeah, I know there was a lot talk about the gaydar out there. But most of the times you don't know. You have to find out. You have to ask questions and to consider the answer like Therese and Carol did on their first date: husband, divorce, Richard likes to live with Therese but Therese can't even make a choice about her lunch. And then: Small contacts between them: Carol putting her hands on There's' shoulders and Therese putting her hand on on Carol's hand while telling her that she looks beautiful. Therese rooting for the Presidential Room instead of two single rooms...
It is like walking on egg shells. Still. And it is beautifully done by the production - actresses, actors, direction, cinematography e&c.
And in the end: Non of the women dies. Thank you Patricia...
