Last night I went to the film Carol. I liked the mood and early 50s details. I wonder if the whole thing is Therese’s memory of the events, years later.
I am feeling ridiculously pleased with myself because the photography made me think of Saul Leiter’s New York street photographs – and Todd Haynes, who made the film, confirms on line that this is so.

I wondered if this look was anachronistic, but apparently Leiter started taking colour pictures in the 50s. All the travel in the film is by car; but Leiter also likes buses.
(I bought a book of his pictures today.)
