Dir: Todd Haynes | US | 2015 | 119 mins
Cast: Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Kyle Chandler
Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara star in Todd Haynes’ (Far from Heaven) exquisite Carol, an adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s lesbian romance, published under a pseudonym in 1952. Mara is Therese, a wannabe set designer in 1950s New York, who falls for the powerfully glamorous, seemingly unattainable Carol (Blanchett). Embarking on a friendship, then an affair, their relationship becomes a journey across mid-century America, revealing the personal and public costs of a forbidden romance that’s seen as an affront to the heterosexual norm. Channelling photographer Saul Leiter in its gorgeously coloured cinematography, this is a headily self-aware, quietly subversive, utterly beautiful film.
“Gorgeous, gently groundbreaking, and might be the saddest thing you’ll ever see.” ***** Tim Robey, Telegraph
