Take a look at the UK poster for Todd Haynes' CAROL

Ahead of this evening's BFI London Film Festival's American Express Gala, Studiocanal have given us a first new look poster for Carol.

Tonight's UK premiere in Leicester Square will be attended by Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, director Todd Haynes, screenwriter Phyllis Nagy, costume designer Sandy Powell, and producers Elizabeth Karlsen, Stephen Woolley, Christine Vachon, Tessa Ross and exec Andrew Upton.

Follow the official accounts from 6pm for live updates from the red carpet:

A young woman in her 20s, Therese Belivet (Rooney Mara) is a clerk working in a Manhattan department store and dreaming of a more fulfilling life when she meets Carol (Cate Blanchett), an alluring woman trapped in a loveless, convenient marriage. As an immediate connection sparks between them, the innocence of their first encounter dims and their connection deepens.
While Carol breaks free from the confines of marriage, her husband (Kyle Chandler) threatens her competence as a mother when Carol’s involvement with Therese and close relationship with her best friend Abby (Sarah Paulson) comes to light. As Carol leaves the comfort of home to travel with Therese, an internal journey of self-discovery coincides with her new sense of space.
Based on Patricia Highsmith’s seminal novel, The Price of Salt, adapted by Emmy nominated screenwriter Phyllis Nagy, directed by Todd Haynes, Carol stars Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Kyle Chandler, Jake Lacy and Sarah Paulson and is set for release on 27th November.
