When Carol walks into a New York department store and meets Therese an unlikely friendship sparks. Carol is a socialite going through a bitter divorce while Therese is just starting out in life. Mesmerized by each other, they face a choice: deny their hearts’ desires or defy society’s conventions.
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.
