In this adaptation of the novel "The Price of Salt" by Patricia Highsmith, Therese (Rooney Mara), a young department-store clerk in 1950s Manhattan, meets Carol (Cate Blanchett), a beautiful older woman stuck in a depressing marriage of convenience. As their bond deepens and they become romantically involved, Carol finds the strength to leave her husband (Kyle Chandler). Unfortunately, her spouse starts to raise questions about her fitness as a mother when he realizes that Carol's relationships with her best friend Abby (Sarah Paulson) and Therese are more than just friendships.

Older & Prouder and Elders Voice are teaming up with The Lexi Cinema to bring you a series of LGBT+ films. There will be three films over three months, focusing on, and celebrating the lives of the LGBT+ community on screen. These events are aimed at the older LGBT+ community, but we also welcome allies.

Older & Prouder also promotes safe spaces for all and we have a zero tolerance policy on discrimination and prejudice, based on – but not limited to – culture, ethnicity, sex, sexuality, gender, gender identity, gender expression, disability and age. We want everyone to feel welcome, safe and respected in our spaces at all times.
