One of films at Cannes this year will be Carol starring Kate Blanchett and Rooney Mara. It's Patricia Highsmith's The Price of Salt. Hope they didn't botch it.

Fantastic. I knew the film was being made but it is great that it is already finished.

I watched a few days ago Ex-Machina (2015) directed by Alex Garland. It's an interesting movie. A good review can be find here: Fembots Have Feelings Too
Here's the trailer:



Another movie I watched and which I recommend is Phoenix(2014) directed by Christian Petzold. Btw, the movie has a lesbian character.

Speaking of lesbian characters, the movie Carol [Highsmith's Price of Salt] will soon be shown at the Cannes Film Festival.
Here are some interesting tid-bits from a Variety interview with Cate Blanchett:
When asked by Variety if this was her first intimate experience with a woman, Blanchett replied with a wry smile, "On film – or in real life?" Pressed to elaborate, the Cinderella star confirmed she has had off-screen relationships with woman "many times," but declined to comment further.

And while there will be some steamy scenes between the two characters, Blanchett promises nothing overly graphic. "It's not Blue Is the Warmest Color," Blanchett says. "That’s not the ambition of the film."

Instead, Blanchett hopes Carol will break misconceptions in Hollywood about female-driven films while appealing to a wide range of audiences. "It was so hard," she explains of getting the film made. "Midrange films with women at the center are tricky to finance. There are a lot of people laboring under the misapprehension that people don't want to see them, which isn't true."

Citing powerful female figures like Meryl Streep, Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, and Cinderella director Allison Shearmur, Blanchett says she's hopeful things will change now that "there's been a critical mass of women who have reached a certain place in the industry."

"I want it to not be discussed anymore," she adds. “But it needs to be discussed.”
