I’m very excited at the news Carol will be shown as one of the main galas at this year’s London Film Festival.
After its world premiere in Cannes earlier this year it’s been an obvious choice for London and now Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara and director Todd Haynes are confirmed to walk the red carpet at the screening on October 14.
Mara already won Best Actress at Cannes and both the film and its stars are likely to be contenders come awards season.
Based on Patricia Highsmith’s novel, the story follows Therese, a young woman in her 20s, working in a Manhattan department store and dreaming of a more fulfilling life when she meets Carol, an alluring woman trapped in a loveless, convenient marriage.
For those unable to get tickets to LFF, Carol will be released in the UK on November 27.
Here’s the new teaser trailer.
