StudioCanal has released the first trailer for Cannes Film Festival favourite Carol.
Carol is a period romance drama based on the novel by Patricia Highsmith. The film was directed by Todd Haynes and stars Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara. The film follows the story of a woman in a loveless marriage (Blanchett) who falls for a department store clerk (Mara) during the 50s. The film had universally positive reviews at Cannes, and is a favourite to be a contender at next year’s Oscars.
The film is set to premiere at the BFI London Film Festival in October, having already been shown at Cannes and New York festivals, before wider release later this year. In the mean time, Blanchett stars in Truth with Robert Redford which is set for an October 16 release, and you can see Mara in Pan, which hits theatres October 8.
