Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara Fall in Love in ‘Carol’ First Trailer

Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara quietly fall in love in the first trailer for their upcoming lesbian romance “Carol.”

The film, directed by Todd Haynes, received rave reviews and generated Oscar buzz following its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May. It also earned Mara a best actress award at the fest.

The 1950s-set drama follows Carol (Blanchett), a Manhattan socialite trapped in a loveless marriage of convenience with Kyle Chandler, whose life is forever changed when she meets a department store clerk (Mara).

The relativity dialogue-free teaser, set to the song “My Foolish Heart,” shows the blossoming romance.

Phyllis Nagy adapted the film based on Patricia Highsmith’s novel “The Price of Salt.”

The drama will screen at the BFI London Film Festival’s American Express Gala on October 14. The Weinstein Co. will release “Carol” in the U.S. on November 20, while Studiocanal will debut it a week later in the U.K.
