Haynes falls vic­tim to awards sea­son

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - NEWS -

We have good news and bad news about Todd Haynes. With no spot for the great man’s Carol, an adap­ta­tion of an early Pa­tri­cia High­smith novel, in the au­tum­nal sched­ule, it looks as if it will not premiere un­til Cannes next May. There is, thus, ev­ery chance that the dis­trib­u­tors won’t put the thing be­fore the gen­eral pub­lic un­til next win­ter.

Such is the tyranny of awards sea­son. The good news is that Haynes is plan­ning a biopic of Peggy Lee, the mighty jazz singer, star­ring a cur­rently resur­gent Reese Wither­spoon. That ac­tor is re­ceiv­ing great reviews for her turn in Jean-Marc Vallee’s Wild.
