In the film adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's "The Price of Salt", we meet Therese, a young woman in New York who lives a directionless life. When Carol shows up at the shop she works in, she for once allows herself to be guided by something that feels right.

Therese (Rooney Mara) is a young woman in 1950s New York. She has a boyfriend she doesn't feel strongly about, works at a toy store, and is generally unsure of what she really wants with her life. One day she meets Carol (Cate Blanchett), an older, married woman who stops by the toy store to buy a present for her daughter. There is a spark, and they become lovers at a time when love between people of the same sex is considered deviant and criminal. When their relationship comes to light, Carol's husband questions her competence as a mother.

The seminal novel on which the film is based, "The Price of Salt", is autobiographical and depicts events that Patricia Highsmith herself experienced when she was young. It was her second book, published under a pseudonym in 1952. It was later republished with the title "Carol" in 1990, and finally under her real name. The film adaptation is masterfully executed by Todd Haynes and has garnered several nominations and awards.
