Carol, dat zich in de jaren 50′ afspeelt, gaat over de welgestelde Carol Aird en de jonge onervaren Therese Belivet.Terwijl Therese Carol steeds beter leert kennen, groeit de liefde tussen beide vrouwen.

Cult Films

Cult Films: “…I really wish there were more cult films…”

“I really wish there were more cult films. It’s like they hardly come into existence.”

Gone with the Wind

Gone with the Wind (1939): “’s about the resourcefulness when there is no other option..”

“The movie that I’ve probably seen more than any other film, is Gone with the Wind (1939) for me. It was my favorite movie growing up for some reason, which is weird because it’s basically a film that’s pro-confederacy during the civil war. . .
