Cate Blanchett’s latest film Carol, which got a standing ovation at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, will have its Australian premiere as part of this year’s Adelaide Film Festival.

Directed by Todd Haynes and set in Manhattan in the 1950s, it tells of the relationship of wealthy and married socialite Carol (played by Blanchett) and department store assistant Therese Belivet (played by Rooney Mara).

“I think the studios have a kind of repeated amnesia about the fact that people actually want to see films about women and they can be profitable,” Haynes told 891 ABC Adelaide.

Some critics are talking of Oscar hopes based on Blanchett’s role.

“It’s just an incredible performance from Cate. I was there is Cannes to see the world premiere and I am just so delighted that we can bring it here to Adelaide,” festival director Amanda Duthie said.

“We have 10 Australian premieres, including the completely magnificent Carol starring Cate Blanchett, in our feature competition and a whole range also in the documentary competition.”

More than 180 films will screen during the Adelaide Film Festival from October 15 to 25. [Source]
