Cate belongs in the 1950's. The wardrobe and set designs are very good but I don't know why it took so long to tell the story.

very beautiful sets clothes etc,love this era. but found quite slow and at times boring . I just couldnt connect emotionally with the characters at all ,think maybe this was direction .

Beautifully crafted and styled perfectly for the 50s. The sexual tension between the 2 women protagonists (Blanchett and Mara - who looks like Audrey Hepburn) is palpable. Just a bit ponderous and melodramatic, but still worth a watch.
