Carol is based on an adaption of The Price of Salt, a novel by Patricia Highsmith. In limited release in November, it should go wide in December and likely gain some Oscar buzz, all things considered.
What’s interesting to me is the choice of the title Carol over The Price of Salt. The book sometimes goes by the title Carol as well but the timing of the release (near Christmas) tied to the choice of Carol feels like it’s trying to grab some cheap holiday cash because people will see Carol and assume Christmas movie. OK, maybe I’m giving people too little credit.
