Carol – Official Trailer #1 – Cate Blanchett

carol Carol is set in 1950s New York, where department-store clerk Therese Belivet (Rooney Mara), who dreams of a better life, falls for an older, married woman, Carol, played by Cate Blanchett.

Also starring Sarah Paulson, Kyle Chandler and Jake Lacy, and with a screenplay by Phyllis Nagy, based on the novel by Patricia Highsmith, this is directed by Todd Haynes, and is released in the UK on November 27th.

According to IMDB, Film 4’s outgoing boss, Tessa Ross, said she had battled for 11 years to get the film made. Based on this trailer, she really shouldn’t have bothered, but then period dramas aren’t really my thing.
