Plot Summary: In an adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s seminal novel "The Price of Salt," "Carol" follows two women from very different backgrounds who find themselves in an unexpected love affair in 1950s New York. As conventional norms of the time challenge their undeniable attraction, an honest story emerges to reveal the resilience of the heart in the face of change. A young woman in her 20s, Therese Belivet (Rooney Mara), is a clerk working in a Manhattan department store and dreaming of a more fulfilling life when she meets Carol (Cate Blanchett), an alluring woman trapped in a loveless, convenient marriage. As an immediate connection sparks between them, the innocence of their first encounter dims and their connection deepens. While Carol breaks free from the confines of marriage, her husband (Kyle Chandler) begins to question her competence as a mother as her involvement with Therese and close relationship with her best friend Abby (Sarah Paulson) come to light.

This was a really good film. Fantastic acting by Blanchett and Mara, both nominated for oscars.

Just a well made film overall. Did well at the oscars too.

Got a chance to watch this today. I saw it was leaving Netflix later this month so I figured I’d give it a go. Overall, I really liked it. Cate did an amazing job.
