Phyllis Nagy’s adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s novel will star Cate Blanchett and Mia Wasikowska.
“Carol” follows the relationship between two very different women in 1950s New York: one, a girl in her twenties working in a department store who dreams of a more fulfilling life, and the other, a wife trapped in a loveless, moneyed marriage desperate to break free, but fearful of losing her daughter in the process.
Pic is co-developed and co-financed by Film4. Christine Vachon’s Killer Films will co-produce. Filming starts October in London and New York.
