In 1950s New York, a young woman in her 20s – Therese – a clerk working in a Manhattan department store and dreaming of a more fulfilling life meets Carol – an alluring woman trapped in a loveless – convenient marriage. An immediate connection sparks between them and the two women, from very different backgrounds, find themselves in an unexpected love affair. Soon the innocence of their first encounter dims and their connection deepens.
Carol’s executive producers Elizabeth Karlsen and Stephen Woolley will be joined by Andrew Wilson for a discussion about Patricia Highsmith and her work and their adaptations.
