Description

    Some people change your life forever

    In an adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s seminal novel The Price of Salt, CAROL follows two women from very different backgrounds who find themselves in an unexpected love affair in 1950s New York.

    As conventional norms of the time challenge their undeniable attraction, an honest story emerges to reveal the resilience of the heart in the face of change. A young woman in her 20s, Therese Belivet (Rooney Mara), is a clerk working in a Manhattan department store and dreaming of a more fulfilling life when she meets Carol (Cate Blanchett), an alluring woman trapped in a loveless, convenient marriage. As an immediate connection sparks between them, the innocence of their first encounter dims and their connection deepens. While Carol breaks free from the confines of marriage, her husband (Kyle Chandler) begins to question her competence as a mother as her involvement with Therese and close relationship with her best friend Abby (Sarah Paulson) come to light.

    Carol is directed by Todd Haynes and written by Phyllis Nagy with moving performances from Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Sarah Paulson, Kyle Chandler, Jake Lacy and Cory Michael Smith.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Groundbreaking Film! Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara both deliver outstanding performances as the two lead characters. The dialogue, atmosphere, and plot of this film results in a hugely unique feel that isn't easily achieved with movies. It's the kind of movie that doesn't move at a super speed pace, but if you look and listen closely at the actors and way each scene is directed, you'll get a lot more out of it. It's one of my favourites of all time and feels very special to me. A must watch..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favourites A truly breathtaking film crafted to perfection by Todd Haynes. Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara display an acting masterclass as the two leads. The story may appear to progress at a slower pace, but unconsciously manages to pull you into the lives of these two characters. As the film reached it's finale, I was holding my breath without even realising it. Simply put a wonderful film and one of my favourites of the year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Carol A wonderful love story. Well done ladies! Deserved Oscars, but the subject is a little too out there for the establishment. A tasteful, moving film, the silences and the female gaze tell all. Worth seeing for the way body language can say so much.
