Here are topics for our discussion of Carol on Monday. Feel free to start the conversation here or to suggest additional topics.
- Framing & decor: the use of windows and mirrors in framing shots.
- How the filmmakers use mise-en-scène to create a film that not only looks and feels like the period, but also looks and feels like a film from the period.
- Action and performance: how Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara use facial expression and body language to show emotion and change. We can also talk about how costume and make-up support these performances.
