Todd Haynes' 'Carol' Tops Film Comment’s Top 10 Films Of 2015 Todd Haynes' "Carol" popping up on a year-end list is not a surprise anymore, nor is George Miller's "Mad Max: Fury Road."

The romantic drama took Best Film, Best Director, Best Screenplay, and Best Cinematography.

Arresting Images And Music Lead New Carol Trailer The Weinstein Company has released a new trailer for the Todd Haynes film Carol. Based on the Patricia Highsmith novel The Price of Salt, the film stars Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara as two women in the 1950s who fall in love despite the mores of the time.
