Carol (2015)

Directed by
Todd Haynes

Patricia Highsmith's same-sex romance novel is brought to sumptuous life by director Todd Haynes. A trail-blazing lesbian love story when it was published in 1952, Haynes artfully recreates the book's evocation of a privileged world in which money is no object but society will not tolerate transgressions from 'the norm'. In Manhattan, Carol is a wealthy housewife and mother unhappily married to Harge. Therese is a would-be photographer paying the bills by working in a department store and putting off making an honest man of her boyfriend Richard. When Carol and Therese meet in the store there begins an intense relationship that will enrich both their lives but also change them irreversibly. Blanchett's Carol is the embodiment of style, sophistication and the illusion of self-control, while Mara's Therese blends bohemian innocence with a powerful curiosity.
