CGiii Comment

With her novel "The Price of Salt/Carol", Patricia Highsmith made literary history: for the first time, presented a lesbian story that did not end in disaster. "Loving Highsmith" casts new light on the famous thriller writer’s life and oeuvre, permeated by themes of love and its defining influence on identity. The documentary is based on Patricia Highsmith’s personal writings and accounts of her family and lovers.
