Pride On Screen: 25 Essential Queer Films

Pride On Screen

23 Carol
Carol
Todd Haynes (2015)

In Haynes’s swoon-worthy translation of Patricia Highsmith’s The Price of Salt, lesbianism and female agency are equally complex, with Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara playing two lovers without a simple bone in their bodies. If men run the world, women who won’t even sleep with them fall low on the ladder. Carol brings us into a world where all of that is defied, and where the courage to do the right thing—be one’s self—might even yield a happy ending.
