Little White Lies 62 – The Carol Issue

The magazine Little White Lies dedicates a whole issue to Carol, on newsstands from Saturday 7.

To borrow a lyric from The Charlatans, love is the key to the new issue of Little White Lies – inspired by and dedicated to the film Carol from director Todd Haynes. In this masterful, heart-crushing work, Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara play a pair of romantically idle women in ’50s New York who meet cute in a department store and gradually, inexorably converge as one. As a piece of craft, the film is untouchable, with cinematographer Ed Lachman and composer Carter Burwell both very much on their A-game.

In this issue…

The Amorous Imagination We talk to the director of Carol about how, in the words of Leonard Cohen, there ain’t no cure for love.
