“I’m very stimulated by visuals and music, and that’s how Todd [Haynes] invites you into the atmosphere of the film. It’s an incredible thing that he’s done. He’s an absolute master,” Cate Blanchett gushed to EW. Yep, as you’ve already heard, “Carol” is the movie to see this fall. At least until “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is unleashed.
With the movie opening this weekend, a plethora of material has arrived to get you ready for the story of the relationship that simmers between a shopgirl and an older, married woman: Blanchett sits down for a 30-minute chat with Dave Poland; Haynes, Blanchett, Rooney Mara, screenwriter Phyllis Nagy, composer Carter Burwell and producer Elizabeth Karlsen have an Academy conversation; Soundworks profiles Burwell; there’s a couple of new cuts from the score; and lastly, The Guardian has a new clip.
Sit back, and watch it all below. And keep an eye on your local listings as the picture expands nationwide.
