CAROL (2015) – AFI Movie Club

With a script adapted from Patricia Highsmith’s novel by screenwriter Phyllis Nagy, director Todd Haynes’ lush and luminous CAROL (2015) was brought to the screen with the assistance of editor – and AFI Alum – Affonso Gonçalves (AFI Class of 1993). The film was honored in 2015 with an AFI AWARD, recognizing it as one of the year’s most outstanding achievements in the art of the moving image – with the official rationale stating that, “CAROL sets the screen aglow with the light of longing as Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara transform a period piece into a timeless cry from defiant hearts.  Todd Haynes serves their romance as a restorative cocktail, adding splashes of color to a repressive Eisenhower-era, when love was often seen in black-and-white. From luminous performances to sumptuous production, this is cinema’s promise fulfilled – a haunting portrait in moving images, painted in the universal hues of heartache and passion.”
