We’re delighted to bring you these exclusive online posters for Todd Haynes’s stunning new film Carol. This beguiling love story is coming to our cinemas on Friday 27 November.
We’ll be hosting an exciting preview of Carol plus a Q&A with director Todd Haynes at Picturehouse Central on Tuesday 24 November. Book now.
In atmospheric 1950s New York, the titular Carol (Cate Blanchett) is marooned in an unhappy marriage to rich businessman Harge Aird (Kyle Chandler, Zero Dark Thirty) when a chance meeting with dreamy shop assistant Therese (Rooney Mara, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) sparks a slow-burning romance between the two women. This prompts much soul-searching and subterfuge on their part, and a bitter custody battle with Harge over Carol’s only child, Rindy (winning newcomer K. K. Heim).
Paired again with Todd Haynes, the maverick director of I’m Not There, Blanchett gives a devastating performance that should be an Oscar shoo-in, with Mara not far behind; their on-screen chemistry fully exploits Phyllis Nagy’s emotionally muscular, pitch-perfect adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s landmark novel.
