Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara star in new Carol trailer

A new trailer has arrived online for 1950’s love story Carol, Todd Haynes’ tale of forbidden romance between leading ladies Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara. And while the first teaser was heavy on mood, this latest trailer reveals a whole lot more in terms of both plot and dialogue.

Adapted from Patricia Highsmith’s novel The Price Of Salt, the film follows the burgeoning relationship between Mara’s store clerk and Blanchett’s unhappily married wife. However, the course of true love never did run smooth, particularly when the union is as complicated as this one…

Carol went down a storm at the recent Telluride festival, with Blanchett and Mara both singled out for praise as the two halves of the film’s central relationship. Directed by Haynes and co-starring Kyle Chandler, Sarah Paulson and Jake Lacy, it opens in the US on November 20 2015 and the UK the following week.
