About

Set in 1950s New York, two women from very different backgrounds, (Kate Blanchett and Rooney Mara), find themselves in the throes of love in CAROL. As conventional norms of the time challenge their undeniable attraction, an honest story emerges to reveal the resilience of the heart in the face of change.  The score is composed by Carter Burwell, best known for his work on Coen Bros films and Twilight.  The songs consists of Jazz and Pop gems of the era portrayed in the film; Billie Holliday, Les Paul and Mary Ford etc.  “There is no widely accepted explanation for the importance of music to humans, but one possibility is its ability to express and relieve emotional tensions that can’t be put into words,” explained Burwell. “In CAROL, two women are romantically attracted to each other but the culture of 1950’s America hasn’t provided them with a language for this. Expressing these inexpressible feelings is one of the roles of the score in this film.”
