Releasing across screens this Wednesday, Carol is a romantic drama set in 1950s New York about a department-store clerk (Rooney Mara), who falls for an older, married woman (Cate Blanchett). This emotionally charged film is based on Patricia Highsmith’s 1952 semi-autobiographical novel, and received a standing ovation at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival premiere earlier this year. Further to this, Carol has been nominated for six Independent Spirit Awards, three NYFCC Awards, two Screen Actors Guild Awards three film critics’ awards, five Satellite Awards and five Golden Globes. No doubt, Carol will be a ‘buzz-word’ during Oscar season!
