Synopsis

In an adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s seminal novel, The Price of Salt, Todd Haynes’ (Far From Heaven, Safe) radiant film follows two women from very different backgrounds as they find themselves in an unexpected love affair in 1950s New York.

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.

“Even high expectations don’t quite prepare you for the startling impact of “Carol,” an exquisitely drawn, deeply felt love story that teases out every shadow and nuance of its characters’ inner lives with supreme intelligence, breathtaking poise and filmmaking craft of the most sophisticated yet accessible order.” ~Justin Chang, Variety
