Leigh and Ellie dive into Carol for this Lez-ssentials episode, a recurring segment on the essential movies and TV shows in the lesbian canon. They're here, they're queer and full of Christmas cheer! They have quite a bit to say about the fate of Carol (Cate Blanchett), Therese (Rooney Mara) and the true star of the movie Abby (Sarah Paulson). Lez-ssentials comes complete with a Carol drinking game because every lesbian movie should be accompanied by heavy drinking.
This is a parody of the cover for Duran Duran's album "Rio" with Cate Blanchett as Hela (from Thor: Ragnarok) as the star. Also a reference to the film, as Bruce Banner wears a t-shirt of the original Rio album.
