Carol, the critically-acclaimed romantic drama based on Patricia Highsmith’s classic novel The Price of Salt, will be released on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital HD on 28th March 2016 by Studiocanal.
The movie tells the story of two women who boldly defy the social conformities of early 1950’s America, with life changing consequences. Set against the backdrop of New York City, the film follows beautiful and compelling housewife Carol (Cate Blanchett), trapped in a loveless marriage to husband Harge (Kyle Chandler). Seeking passion and adventure, Carol is immediately enticed on meeting the demure Therese (Rooney Mara), but will a love affair be beyond their reach? What follows is an intimate portrayal of love, a tender romantic drama that finds two women at a crossroads, forcing Carol to make one of the most difficult decisions of her life.
Carol is directed by Todd Haynes (I’m Not There, Far From Heaven) and has a screenplay by Phyllis Nagy (Mrs. Harris, the stage adaptation of The Talented Mr. Ripley).
Rooney Mara picked up Best Actress for Carol when the film premiered to critical acclaim at last year’s Cannes Film Festival. Recently Carol picked up nominations for the BAFTA Film Awards and the Golden Globes.
