Following Elections we'll enjoy some time to greet friends, grab a beverage or some fresh popcorn and plant ourselves for the cinematic treat, Carol. Set in New York City during the early 1950s, Carol tells the story of a forbidden love affair between a young aspiring photographer and an older woman going through a difficult divorce.
Carol had been in development since 1997, when Phyllis Nagy wrote the first draft of the screenplay. Number 9 Films got involved in 2011, when co-founder Elizabeth Karlsen secured the rights to the novel. Principal photography began in March 2014, in Cincinnati,Ohio, and lasted 34 days. Cinematographer Edward Lachman shot Carol on Super 16 mm film.
Carol was selected to compete for the Palme d'Or at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, where Mara tied for the Best Actress award. The film received critical acclaim and many accolades, including six Academy Award nominations, five Golden Globe Award nominations, and nine BAFTA Award nominations as well as awards from the New York Film Critics Circle, Los Angeles Film Critics Association, and National Society of Film Critics. Carol was named one of the best films of 2015 by numerous critics and publications, appearing in over 130 Top Ten lists. The film opened in limited release in the United States on November 20, 2015, and went into wide release on January 15, 2016. It was released in the United Kingdom on November 27, 2015.
