Starring Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Kyle Chandler, Jake Lacy and Sarah Paulson, Carol takes audiences on a journey back in time to 1950, New York, to follow two women who find themselves in the throes of love.
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.
As conventional norms of the time challenge the women’s undeniable attraction, an honest story emerges to reveal the resilience of the heart in the face of change.
Directed by Todd Haynes and written by Phyllis Nagy, Carol is an adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s seminal novel The Prince of Salt with a moving story reminding us that desire is often expressed in the absence of personal joy.
Carol is in cinemas from 14 January. However, a preview screening of Carol will be held at Dendy Portside Cinema at 6:30pm on Wednesday 13 January and we’ve got 20 double passes to give away!
