14. Carol (2015)
Carol is the story of self-discovery. Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara are in this movie together and their compelling performances in the role of Carol and Therese respectively make it a compelling piece of cinema. Carol and Therese are both growing distant from their male partners and this is the time when they meet. Though at first hesitant, both women realize that they are attracted to each other. Carol’s husband, in an attempt to find evidence to fasten their divorce, also records their relationship using a private investigator. This story is one where two women accept themselves as they are and when they do, they refuse to budge from their positions to give somebody else control of their lives.
