Nominated for six Academy Awards, five Golden Globes, nine BAFTAs, and winner of movie of the year at the AFI Awards, and Best Actress and Queer Palm at Cannes, the accolades for Todd Haynes‘ “Carol” were plentiful throughout 2015. The romantic drama starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara bewitched both critics and audiences, and if you admire the film, or have yet to be put under its spell, today we have the movie on Blu-ray for some lucky readers.
Based on the novel “The Price Of Salt” by Patricia Highsmith, “Carol” follows two women from very different backgrounds who find themselves in an unexpected love affair in 1950s New York. As conventional norms of the time challenge their undeniable attraction, an honest story emerges to reveal the resilience of the heart in the face of change. A young woman in her 20s, Therese Belivet (Mara), is a clerk working in a Manhattan department store and dreaming of a more fulfilling life when she meets Carol (Blanchett), an alluring woman trapped in a loveless, convenient marriage. As an immediate connection sparks between them, the innocence of their first encounter dims and their connection deepens. While Carol breaks free from the confines of marriage, her husband (Kyle Chandler) begins to question her competence as a mother as her involvement with Therese and close relationship with her best friend Abby (Sarah Paulson) come to light.
