Rooney Mara says ‘it’s time’ for LGBT films

Rooney Mara has declared that “it’s time” for more films to start dealing with LGBT experiences.

The American actress, who starred in The Social Network and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, made the comments at a New York Film Festival panel while promoting new LGBT film Carol.

She said: “There’s a lot of people who go through that experience, and there aren’t a lot of films in the past [that] have dealt with it.”

Numerous high-profile films this year – such as Stonewall, Freeheld, and About Ray – all deal with LGBT experiences.

Rooney’s latest film Carol, which also stars Cate Blanchett, portrays the real life romance between a rich married woman and a shop girl in New York in the 50s.
