2016/17 Season


US 2015 (15)
118 minutes

Directed by Todd Haynes

Ipswich Film Theatre - 24 April 2017 - 7.30pm

Carol Aird (Cate Blanchett) goes Christmas shopping in 1950s New York City. Shop assistant Thérèse Belivet (Rooney Mara) helps her choose a train set ...and more. Oscar® nominated and a subtle, sumptuous, adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s novel The Price of Salt, this is also a beautifully nostalgic evocation of its period. The presentation begins with the short film We Were Evergreen: Daughters.

AUDIENCE COMMENTS: Wonderful moody photography matched the performances; Glossy and stylish and captured the early 50s beautifully. Well told with convincing sexual chemistry between the two leading ladies; Poignant and very well acted; Jealous husband, two women in love, jilted boyfriend, dreadfully slow – nice sets though; Loved the music, powerful acting but sometimes moved too slowly.
