Carol - Rotten Tomatoes

Holiday Movie Calendar 2015

Carol

Director Todd Haynes earned an Academy Award nomination for his script for 2002's Far From Heaven, a period drama exploring repressed sexuality. He visits similar themes in Carol, an understated 1950s-set romance centering on an aspiring photographer (played by Rooney Mara) who falls in love with an older woman (Cate Blanchett) she meets while working her day job as a department store clerk. Early reviews of the film, which is based on a Patricia Highsmith novel, have been excellent, and the pedigree both behind and in front of the camera ensures this will be a film to watch when awards season rolls around.
