Director Todd Haynes has established himself as an indie filmmaker who creates memorable roles for women, including his newest film, Carol, which stars Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, Oscar-nominated, respectively, as best actress and best supporting actress. Haynes and Carol producer Christine Vachon tell us that their past success didn't make it easier to find money when financiers learned there would be no male leads in their movie. They also talk about one of their earliest projects, Superstar, the Karen Carpenter biopic made entirely with Barbies.
