Carol

Summary:

Set in 1950s New York, a young woman in her 20s, Therese Belivet (Rooney Mara), works as a clerk in a Manhattan department store, dreaming of a more fulfilling life. When she meets Carol (Cate Blanchett), an alluring woman trapped in a loveless, convenient marriage, an immediate connection sparks between them. The innocence of their first encounter dims and their connection deepens.
