About the Film
This is a moving and thought-provoking film about the freedom to love whomever we choose. Oscar nominee Rooney Mara portrays, with ethereal sweetness and vulnerability, a young department-store clerk in 1950s Manhattan. Perennial Oscar nominee Cate Blanchett plays Carol, a beautiful older woman stuck in a marriage of convenience. This is a sensitive, delicate and dramatic film about two beautiful women drawn to each other in an era of intolerance.
