A second official trailer for Carol has arrived, and the most in-depth look at the romantic lesbian film – swoon.
The film, based on Patricia Highsmith’s 1952 lesbian novel The Price of Salt, is helmed by out director Todd Haynes (Far From Heaven) and stars Cate Blanchett as Carol, a socialite housewife who falls in love with a store clerk, Therese (Rooney Mara).
Sarah Paulson also stars, playing Carol’s (Cate Blanchett) best friend, along with Carrie Brownstein, and Kyle Chandler.
This particular trailer features a glimpse at the intimate romance between Carol and Therese, and the series of consequences their affair has on those around them.
Carol’s grounded yet emotional voice-over is giving us serious goose-bumps.
Roll on November 20th, when we’ll all get the chance to experience this beautiful drama for ourselves.
Carol has already seen impressive success at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Watch the trailer below.
