About Carol

Based on Patricia Highsmith’s most autobiographical work (originally published under a pseudonym), this swooning old fashioned romance transports us to 1952 America, where a wide-eyed department store clerk finds herself tiptoeing into an illicit love affair with a sophisticated older woman. Cate Blancett is majestic in the title role, but its Rooney Mara’s mesmerising performance as Therese that will steal your heart. Evoking Edward Hopper paintings, retro glamour magazines and classic Hollywood, this impeccably crafted film could almost be a lost 1950’s melodrama starring Audrey Hepburn and Lauren Bacall.
