.

Christmas – 1952,

Assistant in shop

Reflects

On meeting with

Lady customer.

.

Cautiously 

A

Relationship develops,

Openly and at

Length.

.

Care 

And

Respect turns to

Obvious

Longing.

.

Criticism grows

Amid

Rumours

Of their

Love affair.

.

Community is

Against one woman’s 

Romance with an

Older

Lady,

.

Crushing them in

Age of prejudice,

Rules and

Oppressive 

Laws.

.

Consuming,

Affectionate and

Real love is tested by 

Offensive 

Lies.

.

Circumstances tragically

Augment the pressure to

Return to their

Opposite

Lives.

.

Commitment

And passion

Recoils just because

Others don’t 

Like it.

.

Certainly not

Appropriate for kids;

Rare but strong scenes

Of

Love making.

.

Cast though 

Aren’t 

Really

Objectified, not for 

Long anyway.

.

Characters have

Agency and the

Realistic intimacy (not

Obscenity) is

Legitimised by this.

.

Candid, 

Aspirational and

Relatable film.

Open hearted and 

Lovely.

.

Cate Blanchett

And

Rooney Mara; brilliant as

On screen

Lovers.

.

Cinematic

Art

Reaches

Outstanding

Levels.

.

Catch it, it’s 

Absolutely

Recommended.

On at your

Local cinema now.
