Synopsis


Carol
In this adaptation of the novel The Price of Salt by Patricia Highsmith, Therese (Rooney Mara), a young department-store clerk in 1950s Manhattan, meets Carol (Cate Blanchett), a beautiful older woman stuck in a depressing marriage of convenience. As their bond deepens and they become romantically involved, Carol finds the strength to leave her husband (Kyle Chandler). Unfortunately, her spouse starts to raise questions about her fitness as a mother when he realizes that Carol's relationships with her best friend Abby (Sarah Paulson) and Therese are more than just friendships. Directed by Todd Haynes. ~ Erin Demers, Rovi

    A Love Story for the Ages

    Carol is a love story dealing with two women at a time where the same gender couldn't publicly have affection for one another. Todd Haynes does a beautiful job to make this movie come together despite taking years and years to get this movie out. Phyllis Nagy's adapted screenplay is remarkable and on-point. Finally, the lead actresses, Cate Blanchet and Rooney Mara, had great chemistry to make their love believable and enchanting.

    Far From Heaven sure wanted to be Douglas Sirk, but this matches him in execution. Great film.

    Ms. Blanchett and Ms. Mara rule! The whole cast deserves kudos. Todd Haynes and Phyllis Nagy did right by Patricia Highsmith's novel.

    Really beautiful film with great performances. The relationship at the center is the core of the film and it's handled really well. Probably not for everyone, but I love it.
