On 5 January he arrived in Italy Carol, the new film by the American director Todd Haynes. Talk about one love story between two women, set in the fifties. The film features Carol Aird (Cate Blanchett), a woman in crisis with her husband and very attached to her little daughter and the young Therese Belivet (Rooney Mara), che invece è sicura di chi vuole essere ma inesperta nelle relazioni.
A casual encounter in a department store in Manhattan, it gives rise to an extraordinary friendship between the two women who soon discover that they both feel the same feelings, transforming their friendship in a report Sapphic.
Grappling with a complicated divorce and a tough custody battle, Carol remains as hypnotized by Therese and from her mysterious beauty and, being alone on Christmas day, invites her to escape with her on a journey to the heart of America.
The film was the most nominated for Golden Globes 2016, taking home 5 nominations. The protagonists are Cate Blanchett is Rooney Mara.
Due donne che nel film sono agli antipodi; Carol she is an elegant, sophisticated, rich and mature-looking woman with blue eyes and blond hair, while Therese she is a more humble girl, with an innocent brown bob that embodies the naive girl next door who works as a shop assistant in a department store in Manhattan.
In the film we will see Carol with a “clean” face, with a make-up that highlights only the details like the fiery red lipstick (which we saw in 2015 being the most widely used cosmetic on the catwalks for the autumn / winter season) and red enamel, letting the skin blemishes (due to age) totally in the background and of no importance.
Even the look of Therese has references of red (in lipstick, in shoes) to seal the momentary harmony of the characters, transforming a docile saleswoman into a lover to care for until the painful and due separation.
Definitely the choice of colors and their opposition to the styles of the actresses it was not accidental, in fact coats, scarves, gloves and monochrome hats do nothing but highlight theirs look, typically Nordic and high-placed one of Cate Blanchett with her blond hair and magnetic look, while more bourgeois and clumsy than Rooney Mara, typical of the "American midwest".
In short, if you have not yet had the pleasure of seeing this poignant movie I strongly recommend it, a small preview can be found here (trailer) and if the retro / vintage look it is your passion to rely on the staff's experience Mimì Colonna, with their advice yours make-up is hairstyling it's in safe hands!
