Saying so much with so little.

We've been going on and on about the big-screen adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's 1952 lesbian potboiler The Price of Salt for the better part of two years now, and this week it premieres at Cannes! Along with that debut come the first clips of the film starring Cate Blanchett as a socialite Carol (also the name of the film) who falls for a younger shop girl (Rooney Mara). The clips don't give much a way in terms of plot, but as with his nuanced Far From Heaven, Haynes with his camera work and the two stars with a coy glance or the twitch of a lip, say so much in a time when the subject of two women together was an ultimate taboo. What we do gather from the clips that much of the sexual tension derives from the act of looking. It's just all too good! 

 

 

The film, due out in theaters this December, costars Sarah Paulson and Carrie Brownstein as two of Carol's ex lovers. Needless to say, we'll be camped out in front of the theater like fangirls on a Twilight movie opening day. 

Mara's Therese looks on...
