The works featured as part of the retrospective include “I’m Not There,” “Far From Heaven,” “Velvet Goldmine,” “Safe,” and the filmmaker’s latest, “Carol.”
A critical darling at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, “Carol” tells the story of forbidden love between two women in 1950s New York. It’s the second film in which the director has teamed up with actress Cate Blanchett. The first was the experimental biopic “I’m Not There,” which examines the life and work of one of Minnesota’s most famous sons, Bob Dylan.READ MORE: Tips On Protecting Packages From Porch Thieves This Holiday Season
