From director Todd Haynes [I’m Not There, Far From Heaven] and based on the best-selling novel, Carol is a powerful romance fuelled by the danger and exhilaration of forbidden love.
When Carol [Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett] walks into a New York City department store and meets Therese [Academy Award nominee Rooney Mara], an unlikely friendship sparks. Carol is an elegant socialite going through a bitter divorce while Therese is just starting out in life; unsure of who she wants to be. Mesmerized by each other, they face a choice: deny their hearts desires or defy society’s conventions, but in doing so, risk life as they know it.
This event takes place in our Studio Theatre with an unreserved, tiered seating layout.
Dir: Todd Haynes, 2015, US/UK, 116 mins., 15
