A stiflingly intimate and exquisite shot romance between Cate Blanchett’s title character and Rooney Mara’s Therese Belivet, we were left spellbound by director Todd Haynes’ Carol.
With a back catalogue that also boasts Velvet Goldmine and Far From Heaven, it is increasingly becoming quite the event when he unleashes a new project.
Enter Wonderstruck, which will be making its bow at this year’s Cannes Film Festival and is the big-screen adaptation of the Barry Selznick novel, with its narrative leaping between the years 1927 and 1977 as it follows runaways Rose and Ben.
Played by debutant Millicent Simmonds and Oakes Fegley (Pete’s Dragon) respectively, the film also reunites Haynes with his Far From Heaven leading lady Julianne Moore alongside Manchester By The Sea’s Michelle Williams.
Today we’ve been treated to a majestic first look at the film, that reinforces the jump in its timeline through an impeccable visual palette, as we’re given a museum tour through its young protagonists.

Wonderstruck is due to be released in the US on 20th October. We await word on an official UK release.
