Carol (Haynes, 2015): Film Screening

Venue: HOME

A chance encounter in a Manhattan department store sparks an extraordinary friendship between two women… Adapted by Emmy-nominated screenwriter Phyllis Nagy from the best-selling novel The Price of Salt by Patricia Highsmith, Carol is a powerful romance fuelled by suspense, danger and the exhilaration of forbidden love. The standout film at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, it achieves masterpiece status for its restrained direction, first-rate performances (Blanchett and Mara simply sizzle) and handsome period design. A triumph for all involved, the film confirms Todd Haynes as the master of melodrama.

These public events accompany the Sexuality Summer School, a five-day event for postgraduates, organized by the Centre for the Study of Sexuality and Culture (CSSC) at the University of Manchester since 2008 and funded by the University of Manchester Faculty of Humanities and , and partnered by Contact, HOME and Manchester Pride. The Sexuality Summer School brings postgraduates, researchers and international scholars together with artists and filmmakers to facilitate dialogue and discussions that speak to contemporary debates in queer and feminist sexuality studies, with a particular emphasis on the interdisciplinary study of culture.
