Carol was adapted from the novel The Price of Salt by Patricia Highsmith. Starring Rooney Mara alongside Cate Blanchett & set against the glamourous backdrop of 1950s New York, Carol is depiction of love against the odds. From the author of The Talented Mr. Ripley and acclaimed director Todd Haynes (Far From Heaven, I’m Not There, Mildred Pierce) comes a powerful drama about a married woman who risks everything when she embarks on a romance with a younger department store worker.
