Director: Todd Haynes
From Gay Essential
Released in 2015, this motion picture follows two women of very different backgrounds who live in New York City during the 1950s. The screenplay is based on a romance novel entitled The Prince of Salt by Patricia Highsmith. Carol stars Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara and Sarah Paulson and was directed by Todd Haynes.
“A lush emotional melodrama along the lines of the films of Douglas Sirk, Haynes’ patron saint, “Carol” is often about its surfaces, their beauty contrasting with the scary duality of people, relationships.”
— Roger Ebert
“Todd Haynes’s love story is a long overdue one. Patricia Highsmith’s thrillers and their indelible characters like Tom Ripley have been catnip to dozens of filmmakers, from Alfred Hitchcock to Wim Wenders. Carol has waited 63 years but finally has the adaptation she deserved all along.”
“Mr. Haynes is a historian of feelings, of the unspoken and invisible traces of the libido.”
— The New York Times
