There's few films we're anticipating more than Todd Haynes' "Carol," and now we can rest easy knowing its officially begun production today in Cincinnati, Ohio.  Starring Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Kyle Chandler and Sarah Paulson as the four members of a love quartet (now that's a love quartet), the film is adapted from the Patricia Highsmith novel "The Price of Salt."

In a press release today, the film's synopsis was listed as the following: 

CAROL follows the relationship between two very different women in 1950s New York. A young woman in her 20s, Therese (Mara) is working in a department store and dreaming of a more fulfilling life when she meets Carol (Blanchett), an alluring woman trapped in a loveless, moneyed marriage. As the story unfolds—their lives begin to unravel with Carol becoming more fearful of losing custody of her daughter in the case of separation when her husband (Chandler) threatens her competence as a mother because of her previous affair with her best friend Abby (Paulson), and new relationship with Therese.

We'll be counting the days until "Carol" is released, which The Weinstein Company is doing in the US  -- though the date is still TBA. Christine Vachon's Killer Films and Elizabeth Karlsen and Stephen Woolley's  Number 9 Films are producing.
