In New York in the early 1950’s, Therese Belivet, is working in a Manhattan department store and dreaming of a more fulfilling life when she meets Carol Aird, an alluring woman trapped in a failing marriage. As an immediate connection sparks between them, the innocence of their first encounter dims and their connection deepens.
"CAROL is a beautiful film, at times bordering on the over-deliberate, with a kind of wrapped-in-smoke and velvet texture to it. The time period is the Christmas and New Year’s holidays of 1952/53, at a time when, says Haynes ‘the Cold War was beginning to clamp down’. It’s a film that reminds the viewer about the act of looking, full of windows, glasses and reflections. As cinematographer Edward Lachman put it, ‘we were trying to further the work of MILDRED PIERCE, a kind of soiled naturalistic look using the mid-century world of photographers like Vivian Meier.’ " (Liam Lacey)
