The first theatrical feature from writer-director Todd Haynes since his 2007 magnum opus I'm Not There would be cause for celebration under any circumstances. It gets even juicier when you consider that Carol stars awards magnet/perfect human Cate Blanchett (and yet it was her co-star Rooney Mara who came away with an acting award when the film premiered at Cannes). Adapted from a Patricia Highsmith novel, Carol appears to place Haynes back in his Far from Heaven comfort zone, as it follows the illicit love affair of a closeted lesbian couple in 1950s New York. Opening November 20 in select cities.
