David fincher dating rooney mara older male dating in willmar mn
Equal to both actors, however, was the challenge of conveying the risk of a same-sex love affair to audiences who live in an age of marriage-equality legislation and transgender TV stars."There's so many secrets, codes and forbidden topics and taboos that exist between the women of 'Carol,' which is fantastic stuff to play with as actors," said Blanchett. The same-sex nature of the relationship sits alongside the age gap, along the gulf of innocence as opposed to experience.There's a lot of other textures in the film to explore beyond their relationship.""And both of the women are coming of age in a different way," added Mara, who skyrocketed to fame for her blistering performance as the lead in David Fincher's version of "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo." "They're both at a stage of life where they have to decide what kind of women they're going to be and if they're going to live their truth or continue on in this life that doesn't really feel like theirs.""Carol," out Friday in limited release, is the screen adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's semi-autobiographical "The Price of Salt." Highsmith, who also wrote "Strangers on a Train" and the "Ripley" series, published the book in 1952 under the pseudonym Claire Morgan because of its taboo subject matter."There's a lot of different directions 'Carol' could have gone, but I could have never imagined the film Todd was going to make until I saw it. "Terse," "rude" and "abrupt" were all used to describe the late author, a public persona that was perhaps a result of the impossible road she had to walk."Being a writer at any period in history is an uncomfortable relationship with the world, but she had a particularly difficult one," said Blanchett.
“Utopia” is based on the hit British series that Dennis Kelly created and Kudos produced for Channel 4.
It wasn't until five years before her death in 1995 that the author, who was a lesbian, put her own name on the book."The interesting thing about a Highsmith character is that they're quintessential outsiders," said Blanchett, who also costarred in 1999's "The Talented Mr.
Ripley." "Going back over all her writing and filmmaking carnations, that outsider perspective was the thing I was interested in mining.
The women have nothing in common until they fall in love, bending all social mores to bridge the gap between their worlds and that of the conservative society around them.
Carol is trapped in what should be a perfect marriage.
