Cate Blanchett is an epitome of beauty, class, and supreme acting prowess. Her talent is superb as what was proven in her films. She will soon star in another movie that can potentially be a massive hit not only for the mainstream art fanatics but also for the critics. She has just recently did some interviews for the said film.


According to Variety, Blanchett sees falling in love as an act without any reservations regardless of the gender as what the film reflects.

“To me, the film is about the power of falling in love. Whether it’s a woman falling for another woman or a heterosexual couple falling in love, any great love story has roadblocks and impediments, but our film shows that it’s about the dangerous, volcanic feelings that you experience when you fall in love,” Blanchett said.

Then she added that love has a universal effect and related it to how she felt when she saw her partner.

Blanchett added:“When you fall in love, you’re out of control and there were some fear and panic and your heart beats faster. That doesn’t change if you are gay or heterosexual. There’s universality to that. It happens to all of us. It happened to me when I met my husband.”


For sure, Blanchett was able to completely gave justice for her portrayal because she sees love as a powerful force. She is willing too to go to the extent of doing a love scene with another female actress to depict their character well. She believes it was necessary to reflect the intensity of their emotions despite breaking the rules and norms of society.

In another interview to Wall Street Journal as cited by Daily Mail, she described the film under the suspense genre. She said, “How are they going to get closer, and who’s going to make the first move, and when are they ever going to be able to make love? It’s a suspense film about when they’re going to get in the sack, basically,”

“Carol” will hit the theaters in the United Kingdom this coming Nov. 27 and in the United States on Nov. 20. How will Cate Blanchett deliver her controversial character?
