The Beautiful, Sumptuous Trailer for ‘Carol’ starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara


From The Weinstein Company and director Todd Haynes, Carol debuts a trailer so rich, so beautiful that it might be impossible to watch just once. Longing, romance, sadness, everything one expects from a Todd Haynes film is here. But it’s more than furtive glances and hands across a shoulder, it’s a groundbreaking exploration of mid-century morales and behavior, not of right and wrong but one of showing that love is a profound risk and a leap of hope.  This a romance for the ages, a film for all time.

From The Weinstein Company:

[box type=”shadow” align=”alignleft” class=”” width=””]In an adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s seminal novel “The Price of Salt,” CAROL follows two women from very different backgrounds who find themselves in an unexpected love affair in 1950s New York. As conventional norms of the time challenge their undeniable attraction, an honest story emerges to reveal the resilience of the heart in the face of change. A young woman in her 20s, Therese Belivet (Rooney Mara), is a clerk working in a Manhattan department store and dreaming of a more fulfilling life when she meets Carol (Cate Blanchett), an alluring woman trapped in a loveless, convenient marriage. As an immediate connection sparks between them, the innocence of their first encounter dims and their connection deepens. While Carol breaks free from the confines of marriage, her husband (Kyle Chandler) begins to question her competence as a mother as her involvement with Therese and close relationship with her best friend Abby (Sarah Paulson) come to light. Carol is directed by Todd Haynes and written by Phyllis Nagy with moving performances from Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Sarah Paulson, Kyle Chandler, Jake Lacy and Cory Michael Smith.[/box]

Carol hits theaters November 20 from The Weinstein Company.

I’m also including the UK trailer which was also released today. A little different and with some added moments. Check it out.
