Producers of the upcoming film Carol
this week released the movie's first trailer
Cate Blanchett stars opposite Rooney
Mara in Carol.
Based on Patricia Highsmith's (under
the pseudonym Claire Morgan) 1952 novel The
Price of Salt, the film – set in 1950s New York –
revolves around department-store clerk Therese (played by Mara) as
she falls for Carol, an older, married woman (Blanchett).
A key scene from the trailer involves
Carol informing Therese that her husband will keep her from seeing
her daughter if she leaves him.
“We gave each other the most
breathtaking of gifts,” Carol tells Therese. (The video is

Carol premiered at the Cannes
Film Festival in May and opens in theaters November 20.
