Carol at 9pm

We did several posts of Todd Haynes' CAROL here in recent years, as per labels, nice to see it is on Channel4 here in the UK tonight. My friend Martin would say "I have the blu-ray so I can watch it anytime", but it means it will be seen by a bigger audience here than on its initial rather limited release in 2015.

It has been announced that Cate will play Margo Channing in a stage production of ALL ABOUT EVE here in London next year .... lets hope its from Mankiewicz's original and not a re-working of the horrendous '70s musical APPLAUSE

  1. It's always nice to be quoted even in such derogatory terms :) I do need to see my bluray of CAROL as I was less bowled over by it on its initial release than many people were. Cate in London is a whole different kettle of fish. BTW while I didn't like APPLAUSE it did have possibly the best curtain call I have ever seen, at least on the night I was there.
