This group of Carols sings a carol about Carol and we’re obsessed

A group of singers dressed up as Carol and Therese from Carol.

Netflix has just added 2015 lesbian drama Carol to its catalog and has celebrated with a special Christmas… carol.

Better yet. With a group of Carols and Thereses singing a carol about Carol. We know it’s confusing, but it’s actually one of the best things you’ll see all week.

Hark! We group of Carols sing

The singers added a same-sex love spin to the classic Hark! The Herald Angels Sing. The film is partly set during the holidays, with the two protagonists meeting in a department store over Christmas time.

The classic Christmas carol has been turned into Hark! The Herald Carols sing and features three Carols and three Thereses. The carolers pull off the same outfits lovers Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara sport in the movie directed by gay filmmaker Todd Haynes.

Here are the lyrics:

Hark! We group of Carols sing,
With my queen, who needs a king?
Oh, Therese, I’m so beguiled,
Onto me, the fates have smiled.
Joyful, oh, to see thy face,
Strange but lovely, flung from space,
This, which started with a glove,
Has transformed into true love.

Carol is a favorite LGBTI flick

The movie has a 94% score on Rotten Tomatoes. The script by lesbian screenwriter Phyllis Nagy is an adaptation of 1952 novel The Price of Salt by Patricia Highsmith.

Both Blanchett and Mara received Oscar nods for their performances. However, despite having the same screen time as Blanchett, Mara was nominated as Best Supporting Actress.

The film earned four other nominations at the 2016 Academy Awards: Cinematography, Adapted Screenplay, Original Score and Costume Design.
