Cate Blanchett Romances Rooney Mara in ‘Carol’ Official Trailer

While the first teaser for “Carol” showed Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara’s characters falling quietly in love, the official U.S. trailer shows them knee-deep.

The trailer from the Weinstein Company offers a glimpse at a tasteful love scene between the women and reveals plot details about the custody battle that ensues between Carol (Blanchett) and her husband (played by Kyle Chandler) following her affair.

“If he can’t have me, I can’t see my daughter,” Blanchett’s character says of her jaded ex.

Blanchett plays a Manhattan socialite trapped in a loveless marriage in the 1950s-set drama. Her life takes a turn when she meets a young department store clerk (Mara).

The lesbian romance, directed by Todd Haynes and adapted by Phyllis Nagy from Patricia Highsmith’s novel “The Price of Salt,” 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 film got another awards season boost after playing at the Telluride Film Festival on Friday. It will screen at the BFI London Film Festival’s American Express Gala on Oct. 14.

“Carol” hits theaters on Nov. 20.
