Cate Blanchett stars in Todd Haynes' adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's romantic thriller.

When Carol (Cate Blanchett) walks into a New York City department store and meets Therese (Rooney Mara) an unlikely friendship sparks. Carol is an elegant socialite going through a bitter divorce while Therese is just starting out in life; unsure of who she wants to be. Mesmerised by each other, they face a choice: deny their hearts' desires or defy society’s conventions but in doing so, risk life as they know it. From director Todd Haynes (I’m Not There, Far From Heaven) and based on the best-selling novel, Carol is a powerful romance fuelled by the danger and exhilaration of forbidden love.
