Los Angeles: Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara starrer 'Carol' will have its UK premier at BFI London Film Festival.
Directed by 'Far from Heaven' helmer Todd Haynes the film will be screened on October 14 said The Hollywood Reporter.
Adaptation of 'The Price of Salt', a lesbian romance by Patricia Highsmith, the film is set in the 1950s and focuses on a woman in her 20s (Mara) who works in a Manhattan department store and meets Carol (Blanchett), who is trapped in a loveless, convenient marriage.
"'Carol' is a deeply romantic, emotionally honest love story and is also cinema at its most intoxicating and immaculate," said BFI London Film Festival director, Clare Stewart.
"We are all extremely proud to be presenting the UK premiere of 'Carol' at the BFI London Film Festival, a film adaptation which had its roots in Britain, and a festival which has meant a tremendous amount to me personally over the years," Haynes said.
The BFI London Film Festival 2015 runs from October 7 to 18, 2015.
