A new adaptation of author Patricia Highsmith’s times-testing novel, The Price of Salt, is seeing a limited release this Friday, November 20th in the form of a new drama titled Carol. Screenwriter Phyllis Nagy (Mrs. Harris) penned the script for the project, which was directed by Oscar-nominee Todd Haynes (Far From Heaven, I’m Not There) and stars Oscar-winner Cate Blanchett (Robin Hood, The Monuments Men) and Oscar-nominee Rooney Mara (The Social Network, Her) as an older, married woman and a department store clerk, respectively, who enter into an unconventional love affair in 1950s Manhattan. Along with the culture and societal norms of the times, their relationship becomes even more strained as Carol deals with possibly separating from her husband, and furthermore, loosing her daughter. Also starring in the film are actors Kyle Chandler (Zero Dark Thirty, The Wolf of Wall Street) and Sarah Paulson (Mud, 12 Years A Slave). The earned big nods at the Cannes Film Festival, winning selections for Best Film and Best Actress, and will see a limited theatrical release this Friday, with an expanded release possibly happening sometime in 2016.
