In 1950s New York, Therese is working in a department store and dreaming of a more fulfilling life when she meets Carol, an alluring older woman trapped in a failing marriage. A connection sparks between them, but this prompts Carol’s husband to retaliate by challenging her competence as a mother.
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.
