Cate Blanchett, Enya, Bruntwood Prize winner

Oscar-winning actor Cate Blanchett discusses her role in Todd Haynes' new film Carol, based on a Patricia Highsmith novel about an affair between a 1950s American housewife and a shop assistant (Rooney Mara).

It's inspired by the poetry of Roma Ryan which takes islands as its theme, and specifically the Channel Island of Sark - designated the world's first dark sky island.
