December has been a good month for "Carol," the critically acclaimed romantic drama about a department store clerk (Rooney Mara) who falls in love with an older socialite (Cate Blanchett) in 1950s New York. The film led the Golden Globes with five nominations including Best Drama Picture, earned another nine bids at the Critics' Choice Awards and contends twice at the SAG Awards for stars Blanchett and Mara.
Over the last two months, we've chatted with the film's actors, director Todd Haynes, screenwriter Phyllis Nagy and many of the creative below-the-line talents. Click each link below for our complete video and audio chats.
