Move over Mia Wasikowska, Rooney Mara is taking over her role in the film adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s 1952 lesbian novel The Price of Salt. The film (which has been re-titled) Carol has cast Cate Blanchett to play the role of a wealthy, married older woman who falls in love with a younger woman played Mara. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Mara getting physical with a woman (Side Effects). We’re curious to see the chemistry between these two. Out director Todd Haynes (Far From Heaven) is set to direct. [SheWired]

 

Out director Kimberly Pierce’s (Boys Don’t Cry) latest film Carrie—a remake of the 1976 classic film— has a new full trailer. Trust us, it gives you chills. [SlashFilm]

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has unanimously decided to uphold the ban on gay-to-straight conversion Therapy. Multiple states are now recognizing that it is not a parents’ right to subject their children to this (highly abusive) process, and that upholding the ban does not violate the right to free speech. That’s definitely a step in the right direction. [BuzzFeed]
