WATCH: First Trailer for Todd Haynes’ ‘Carol’ starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara

Excitement for Todd Haynes’ upcoming “Carol” is palpable throughout the industry, at least for the many that couldn’t venture out to Cannes in May for its premiere.  Today, we have the first trailer for the Oscar hopeful that stars Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara.

The film is distributed by The Weinstein Company and is set to be released in November.

Check it out:

SYNOPSIS: Starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara & set against the glamourous backdrop of 1950s New York, Carol is an achingly beautiful depiction of love against the odds. From the author of The Talented Mr. Ripley and acclaimed director Todd Haynes (Far From Heaven, I’m Not There, Mildred Pierce) comes a powerful drama about a married woman who risks everything when she embarks on a romance with a younger department store worker.
