Todd Haynes Carol Q&A and triple bill retrospective at Picturehouse Central


With his acclaimed 1950s love drama Carol, starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, due to hit UK cinemas on 27 November, director Todd Hayne's previous work surely deserves re-appraisal. Carol went down a storm at Cannes, with the film being selected to compete for the Palme d'Or, and Mara tied for the Best Actress award. The film currently holds a 93% score on Rottentomatoes.

To mark the release of Carol, Picturehouse Central will be screening a Todd Haynes triple bill on 22 November,  There is not a weak film in the trio, and all three will be screening from 35mm prints. Tickets and details here.  Haynes himself will be attending a Q&A screening of Carol later on 24 November at 6pm. Ticket and details here.
