“The film is set against the glamourous backdrop of 1950s New York, Carol is an achingly beautiful depiction of love against the odds. It’s a powerful drama about a married woman (Cate Blanchett) who risks everything when she embarks on a romance with a younger female department store worker (Rooney Mara).”
So basically Rooney Mara is playing the role of a homewrecker?
Besides Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, the cast also includes Kyle Chandler, Sarah Paulson, Cory Michael Smith, Jake Lacy, Carrie Brownstein, and John Magaro.
In theaters: November 20, 2015.
