Todd Haynes’s Carol is a deeply romantic, emotionally honest love story about two women who courageously defied the suffocating conformities of mid-century America. The film is based on Patricia Highsmith’s groundbreaking novel The Price of Salt, which was written and published in 1952 at a time when its subject was considered scandalous.
