Carol Day San Francisco Event (AUDIO)

By Charlotte Robinson, December 15, 2023

The historic Roxie Theater in San Francisco is hosting Carol Day on Thursday December 21st at 6:30P presented by OUTlook & Frameline. The event will be celebrated as a Todd Haynes' holi-gay of holy style with trivia, prizes, giveaways & more. Costumes are greatly encouraged so get as creative as you want since there are plenty of options from both the Cate Blanchett & the Haynes catalogs or just arrive with a pair of gloves you don't intend to return home wearing. Frameline's final 2023 screening of Carol will be an event not to miss with themed couples' costumes & make sure to bring your angel flung out of space & remember "there are no accidents." Written by out lesbian Phyllis Nagy, Carol endured an 18-year journey to bring it to the screen. Nagy delivers a beautiful & honest story within the conventional norms of the 1950’s. The now classic lesbian XMAS feature film is about a young woman in her 20s, Therese Belivet (Rooney Mara) who is working as a saleswoman in a Manhattan department store & dreaming of a more fulfilling life when she meets Carol (Cate Blanchett) an alluring woman trapped in a loveless, convenient marriage. As an immediate connection sparks between them the innocence of their first encounter becomes more challenging as their love deepens. When the film first came out in December of 2015 I talked to writer-director Phyllis Nagy in this exclusive audio interview about her screenplay that won the New York Film Critics Circle for Best Screenplay & was nominated for an Oscar Best Adapted Screenplay.
