During the 1952 Christmas season, aspiring photographer Therese Belivet works at Frankenberg’s Manhattan store. She meets Carol Aird, a glamorous woman looking for a doll for her daughter Rindy. On Therese’s advice, Carol buys a model train set instead. When Carol leaves, she puts her gloves on the counter. Therese uses Frankenberg’s sales receipt, typing Carol’s name and address, and mailing her.
Therese’s boyfriend Richard asks her to go to France with her hoping that they will marry, but is unsure about their relationship. Dannie, a mutual friend, invites Therese to her workplace, The New York Times, and offers to introduce her to a photo editor friend. Meanwhile, Carol is going through a difficult divorce from her husband Harge. Carol calls Frankenberg’s to thank the officer for returning the gloves and invites Therese to lunch. Therese visits Dannie and kisses him, but gets annoyed and leaves.
Carol invites Therese to her home in New Jersey. She stops buying a Christmas tree and Therese takes candid pictures of her. Harge unexpectedly takes Rindy to Florida for Christmas; She becomes suspicious of Therese because she had an affair with Carol’s friend Abby years ago. We witness their arguments there. After Rindy leaves, distressed Carol takes Therese to the train station so she can return home.
Carol calls to apologize and they meet at Therese’s house, and Carol surprises her with a suitcase that presents her with a Canon camera and film. Carol learned that Harge had petitioned the judge to consider a “moral clause” against her, threatening to expose her homosexuality and give her full custody of Rindy. He decides to go on a journey to escape the stress of the divorce case and invites Therese to join him. Richard accuses Therese of falling in love with Carol and predicts that Carol will soon get tired of her. The two argue and their relationship comes to an end. On the second night of the trip, Therese meets peddler Tommy Tucker.
On New Year’s Eve, Carol and Therese kiss and have sex for the first time. The next morning, they discover that Tucker was actually a private detective Harge hired to obtain evidence against Carol. Carol confronts Tucker by threatening him at gunpoint, but he claims he has already sent tapes to Harge. Carol and Therese are back. The next day, in Chicago, Therese learns that Carol was flying home to fight for custody of her daughter, asking Abby to take Therese home. Abby gives him a letter from Carol. When Therese returns home, she phones Carol, but knows that Rindy risks losing custody if she continues her relationship with Therese, and she hangs up.
Therese creates a portfolio of her photos and gets a job at The New York Times. Meanwhile, Carol sees a psychotherapist as a condition of her divorce settlement. During a meeting with divorce lawyers in mid-April, Carol suddenly admits the truth the tapes contain and refuses to deny her sexuality. She tells him that if She allows Harge to visit her regularly to avoid going to court and the possibility of a general scandal, she can take custody of Rindy.
Carol writes to Therese and they meet in the hall of the Ritz Tower Hotel. Carol reveals that she is going to work for a furniture house and maintains an apartment on Madison Avenue. Therese refuses Carol’s invitation to live with her. Carol tells Therese that she will meet her colleagues in the Oak Room and if she changes her mind, they can have dinner. Therese stands still and Carol says, “I love you.” They are interrupted by her colleague Jack, who has not seen Therese for months, and Carol leaves.
Therese agrees to have Jack go to a party, but realizes that Jack can’t connect with anyone. She’s going to the Oak Room. He scans the food and sees Carol at a table. Therese hesitates and walks towards Carol. His eyes meet. Carol looked at Therese with a slowly growing smile.

Carol Novel / Book
“A great American writer … Highsmith’s writing is bad … it spells you.” -Weekly entertainment
Now it’s a big movie.
Patricia Highsmith’s romantic obsession may be one of the most important but still largely unrecognized novels of the twentieth century. The book, first published in 1952 and introduced as “a novel of love banned by society”, soon became a cult classic.
