LOS CABOS FILM FESTIVAL CONFIRMS CAROL AND REMEMBER IN ITS GALAS PROGRAM AND ANNOUNCES THE FILMS OF WORLD HIGHLIGHTS PROGRAM
Los Cabos International Film Festival announces two films from its Galas Program: Carol by the American director, Todd Haynes, and Remember by the Canadian director, Atom Egoyan, as well as the films of the World Highlights program.
“…even high expectations don’t quite prepare you for the startling impact of Carol an exquisitely drawn, deeply felt love story that teases out every shadow and nuance of its characters” Justin Chang. Variety
The Festival will hold the Gala Screening of Carol as a Latin American Premiere. This film had its world premiere at Cannes Film Festival; the performance of the main characters received a standing ovation, where Rooney Mara won the award for Best Actress. Likewise Todd Haynes won the Canne’s Queer Palm for his sublime work of the 1952’s love story narrated by Patricia Highsmith (Stangers on a train, 1950; The Talented Mr. Ripley, 1955, etc.) on her novel, The Price of Salt.
