Watch This: New Trailer for Carol

Kyle Chandler and Cate Blanchett

I’m way behind the times with this trailer for Carol. It looks like an emotional and possibly heartbreaking ride.

Carol stars Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara in a story set in 1952 New York City. It tells the story of a young female clerk and her love affair with an older, married woman. Also in the film are Sarah Paulson and Kyle Chandler.

The film is based on a novel “The Price of Salt” by Patricia Highsmith. The screenplay was written by Phyllis Nagy. Todd Haynes is the director.

The film looks very stylish and moody and 1950ish, if there is such a thing as 1950ish. The publicity stills have been a love affair with Cate Blanchett’s face, so I expect lots of beautiful shots of her in the film.

Late November will be the release date. Adding to the excitement over the release, the film received rave reviews at the Cannes Film Festival and at other festivals where it has appeared.
