Hey :) What do you know about the tweet that said they pushed Carol back to 2015 because of Cate's brilliant performance and her subsequent award chances?
missbelivet missbelivet Said:

Hi. Well let’s trace back to the much obvious comments of those who have seen the promo/snippets of Carol at Cannes and said that Cate is really really good in this movie, combined with contributors who have seen a teaser and even a wip screening - the performance does seem like it is brilliant (and on paper it is that strong) based on those early reactions, plus the info passed my way were all positive - mentioning that Cate’s really great in this. 

I have posted last February, a month before they even started filming, that Carol might indeed be pushed to 2015 and just this late July, it was known that Carol will not be ready until Spring 2015 because they’re simply not done with the post-prod work yet. So I am not so sure if Cate’s brilliant performance is the main reason why they pushed it to 2015, maybe “part” of many reasons, but who knows…I am just really anticipating for this film to come out.

If the premiere of Carol is at the Cannes festival, will take long for the movie premiere internationally?
missbelivet missbelivet Said:

I am not entirely sure, but it will really depend on the film’s international distributors - some countries may release it months after the world premiere, while others can take up to a year (after w.p.). 

Hopefully, we don’t get to wait a long time for this one ;)

what's the meaning of your username?
missbelivet missbelivet Said:

The username Miss Belivet was inspired by the fictional character known as Therese Belivet from the best-selling novel “The Price of Salt” aka “Carol” written by Patricia Highsmith.

Any Preview for launching of Carol?

Hello. There’s no new report yet. 

Trivia Tuesday : Did you know that the gorgeous Goldfrapp song “Stranger" was inspired by Patricia Highsmith’s "Carol"? How cool is that?

”Stranger” is from the Goldfrapp album “Tales of Us”. Buy the album via itunes by clicking this link

STRANGER 
Songwriters: GREGORY, WILLIAM OWEN / GOLDFRAPP, ALISON ELIZABETH
Stranger, when you look at me
Eyes strong as steal
Light as day

Born a mystery
You’re the in between
Boy or girl

Wilder, than I’ve known before
Fire rushes through
Every vain
With a smile that sings
You’ll be killing me tenderly

Every word is soft as fur
I’m drifting deep deeper in

Stranger, will you remember
Stranger, make me remember you

Taken by the crowd a tide
It’s there then gone do or die

Stranger, I dream of you and
Stranger, I will never know

Hello, thank you for supporting the blog. Oh, we’re all so excited for this film too. Regarding your question, let’s just put it this way… Abby + Therese in Carol’s house Christmas morning = very charming.

Hi I am a big fan of tumblr and cate blanchett, but I've never seen her commenting much of the movie, you know if you have any prediction press conference?
missbelivet missbelivet Said:

Hi there. They haven’t been promoting the film yet that’s why there’s a lack of comments about it. Although, there had been interviews wherein Cate or the interviewer said something related to “Carol” like when Cate said something about Phyllis Nagy’s script being developed for 12 years and a random trivia about Cate naming her latest dog, Carol, etc. 

But expect for things to gain steam and heat regarding “Carol” once the film nears its release (TBA 2015) - that’s when we’ll get those juicy and anticipated interviews ;)

—“What’s going to happen when we get back to New York? It can’t be the same, can it?”

—“Yes,” Carol said. ” Till you get tired of me.”
