Woo hoo! Cate Blanchett has signed off for a new movie. Her new project, which will co-star Mia Wasikowska, is called “Carol,” and it’s a big-screen adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s novella “The Prince of Salt.” So what is this movie about? Why, it’s a lesbian love story set in the 1950s, of course.
“The Prince of Salt” tells the tale of Therese (presumably Wasikowska), a young woman in New York working in a department store. She finds herself bizarrely drawn to Carol (presumably Blanchett), a 30-something customer in an unhappy marriage.
