Episode 223: Carol with Becky Rice

Movie Night Extravaganza by Forrest Miller

Episode notes

Forrest, J. Andrew World, Conan Neutron, and Becky Rice talk about Todd Haynes 2015 romantic drama Carol.

Based on a semi-autobiographical Patricia Highsmith novel (written under a pen name) that was written just two years after Strangers on a Train..

Cate Blanchett stars as Carol, a lesbian socialite going through a divorce, and Rooney Mara stars as Therese Belivet, a Bloomingdales employee and aspiring photographer.

Patricia Highsmith wanted to do the unheard of task of creating a lesbian romance novel with a happy ending.

It took 20 years from the time the first draft of the screenplay was started until the film was released. It was written by Patricia Highsmith's friend Phylis Nagy after Highsmith's death. #carol #cateblanchett #rooneymara #toddhaynes #highsmith #lgbt #lgbtqia #film
