Deets: When Carol Aird walks into the life of young Therese Belivet, it's to buy Christmas gifts at the Department store where she is a demure shopgirl. But there is no mistaking that first encounter for anything other than a true coup-de-foudre. Epically gorgeous and irresistably suave, Cate Blanchett as Carol joins the ranks of great actors such as Bette Davis, Cary Grant, Joan Crawford and Sidney Poitier who defined for certain eras, in particular roles what it meant to be a true movie star. Rooney Mara keeps perfect pace as the love-struck Therese and we experience their passion and pain as viscerally as we might have in first reading Patricia Highsmith's ground-breaking novel The Price of Salt, upon which Todd Haynes' brilliant film (and Phyllis Nagy's script) was based.

A Q&A with Todd Haynes follows the screening, moderated by Rajendra Roy, the Celeste Bartos Chief Curator of Film, The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
