In an adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s 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.
In the latest featurette, we get a behind the scenes look at the people who brought Carol to the silver screen so exquisitely.
This clip not only features Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, who play the leading lovers, but also director Todd Haynes and co-star Sarah Paulson, who plays Carol’s former lover and current confidant.
Watch the clip below, then make plans to catch Carol as soon as possible:
The film has generated Oscar buzz since its May premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.

The new featurette allows viewers to go behind the scenes and hear from the entire ensemble cast, including Sarah Paulson, who plays a former lover of Carol in the film.
