A new featurette for the lesbian romance film Carol includes interviews with the entire ensemble cast.

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 Rooney Mara) as she falls for Carol, an older, married woman (Cate Blanchett).

The film has generated Oscar buzz since its May premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.

The Weinstein Company, which is distributing the film, is planning a slow platform release for Carol. Distribution won't go wide until after Oscar nominations are announced in mid-January.

The new featurette allows viewers to go behind the scenes and hear from the entire ensemble cast, including Sarah Paulson, who plays a former lover of Carol in the film.
