"When Carol (Cate Blanchett) walks into a New York City department store and meets Therese (Rooney Mara) an unlikely friendship sparks. Carol is an elegant socialite going through a bitter divorce while Therese is just starting out in life; unsure of who she wants to be. Mesmerized by each other, they face a choice: deny their hearts desires or defy society’s conventions but in doing so, risk life as they know it. From director Todd Haynes  and based on the best-selling novel, Carol is a powerful romance fueled by the danger and exhilaration of forbidden love." Studiocanal
