The Hitman's Bodyguard
While no one is going to mistake The Hitman’s Bodyguard for high art, it will please those in the mood for late-summer fun.
Director Todd Haynes proved his knack for capturing high gloss sumptuous period pieces with an underbelly of taboo love in 2002's "Far From Heaven." In his new film, "Carol," he brings to the screen Patricia Highsmith's novel "The Price of Salt" set in 1952 in New York City that portrays a complicated love affair between a wealthy socialite Carol and a young aspiring photographer, Therese.
Australian actress Cate Blanchett gives another flawless performance as the beautiful Carol and Rooney Mara tied for Best Actress award at this year's Cannes Film Festival for her performance as Therese.
Australian film reporter Katherine Tulich sat down with Blanchett, Mara and director Todd Haynes for this video interview.
