Carol Fans Are Angry that Delta Denies Same-Sex Kiss, Demand #FreeCarol

Carol is not nearly as chaste as Delta and the Weinstein Company would have you believe. 

While watching an exquisitely crafted film like Todd Haynes’ Carol on a screen the size of paperback book is not recommended, it’s understandable that Delta passengers might be tempted to dive into the movie that stars Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara as’50s-era women who fall in love (and consummate it) under the strictures of McCarthy-era surveillance and gender and sexuality mores.

Sadly, the Weinstein company, which produced the critically-acclaimed film based on Patricia Highsmith’s 1952 novel The Price of Salt, made two versions of the film available – the first version, released in theaters last November and December, depicts a passionate and necessary love scene between the lead characters.  But Delta is not the friendliest in the skies when it comes to same-sex affection. Not only does the airline show a censored version that cuts out the love scene, which does include some nudity, it goes a step further and removes an innocuous kissing scene prior to the love scene.
