Carol — Teaser Trailer


added: Mon, Aug 17th '15

Oscar-winner Cate Blanchett has a "foolish heart" in the first teaser trailer for director Todd Haynes' stylish romantic drama "Carol" about a lonely 1950s married woman (Blanchett) who falls madly in love with a dewy-eyed department-store clerk, played by Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo).

The New York-set film is based on "The Price of Salt," the 1952 lesbian romance novel by "The Talented Mr. Ripley" author Patricia Highsmith and was adapted by Emmy-nominated writer Phyllis Nagy (HBO's Mrs. Harris). The film also marks Haynes' first feature-length effort since 2007's Bob Dylan biopic "I'm Not There," which also starred Blanchett.

In addition to Blanchett and Mara, the cast also includes Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights) and Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story).

"Carol" premiered to strong reviews at this year's Cannes Film Festival. Since then, it's been viewed as a major awards contender. The film will be released in the U.S. on November 20th and in the UK on November 27th.

Starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara & set against the glamourous backdrop of 1950s New York, Carol is an achingly beautiful 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.
