Cate Blanchett is captivating, talented and absolutely exquisite. Who could resist her charms? Hell, I’d probably fall in love with the 46-year-old actress if the opportunity ever presented itself.
Set in New York in the early 50s, Carol is a lesbian love story between a wealthy woman trapped in a loveless marriage and a young lady played by Blanchett and Rooney Mara respectively. Sparks immediately fly after a chance meeting at a Manhattan department store. Their connection only deepens as more time is spent.
Sarah Paulson and Kyle Chandler round out the cast in the Todd Haynes-directed film. Mara tied for the Best Actress award at this year’s Cannes Film Festival for her performance. Carol romances moviegoers in limited release on November 20. Check out the trailer below.
