PrintThe album features the original music composed by Carter Burwell (Mr. Holmes, Fargo, Mildred Pierce). “There is no widely accepted explanation for the importance of music to humans, but one possibility is its ability to express and relieve emotional tensions that can’t be put into words,” says Burwell. “In Carol, two women are romantically attracted to each other, but the culture of 1950s America hasn’t provided them with a language for this. Expressing these inexpressible feelings is one of the roles of the score in this film.” This marks Burwell’s third collaboration with the film’s out director, Todd Haynes.
