Synopsis

MUBI's take

One of the most beloved films of this century, Todd Haynes’ Oscar®-nominated Carol is a stunningly directed story of forbidden love. Evoking Douglas Sirk’s lush melodramas, this adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s novel features intimate and moving performances from Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara.
