Lesbian movie 'Carol' trailer: Watch Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara fall in love
August 20, 2015 /LGBT News/ The first official trailer for lesbian-themed drama Carol was released earlier this week. The film stars Australian Academy Award-winner Cate Blanchett as a wealthy married lesbian, alongside Rooney Mara, who won a best actress award for the film at the Cannes Film Festival in May.
The teaser trailer of the film that was recently released shows Carol falling for the young woman who she met in a department store. The entire montage is set to the song "My Foolish Heart," which really sets the tone of the film.
Directed by Todd Haynes, the film is based from the 1952 novel The Price of Salt by Patricia Highsmith. In an interview with The Guardian, Highsmith revealed she has been in many relationships with women, saying “more times than rats have orgasms”.
The film premiered at Cannes earlier this year, and will be released in the US on November 20, 2015.
