Dir. Todd Haynes, 2015, 118 mins. With Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Sarah Paulson, Kyle Chandler, John Magaro. Haynes’s astonishing adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s audacious 1952 novel The Price of Salt, about two Manhattan women from different walks of life who fall in love in the early 1950s, is one of the great cinematic love stories of the 21st century. In Oscar-nominated performances of remarkable depth and poise, Blanchett and Mara evoke oceans of feeling despite their characters needing to tightly conform to a repressive social reality, which Haynes portrays with heartbreaking directness. Overturning clichés of tragic queer romances, Carol finds beauty, tenderness, and fragility in its seemingly impossible love.
