CARRIE PILBY

Florida Premiere

DIRECTED BY Susan Johnson

Country: USA
Language: English

Running Time: 98min
Film Year: 2016
Category: Cinema 360º

If ever you presumed life was easier for geniuses, Carrie Pilby (Bel Powley) will set you straight. Carrie graduated from Harvard at the age of 19, yet she’s utterly adrift in life, with no work, no sense of purpose and no talent for friendship—in part because she can’t stand most people. Can her father’s therapist friend (the ever-adorable Nathan Lane) help the fearsomely clever Carrie settle into functional adulthood? Maybe even find someone she’s willing to date?

Susan Johnson’s adaptation of Caren Lissner’s bestseller is a smart, surprisingly resonant coming-of-age comedy that turns notions of privilege inside out. Carrie may have a hard time liking people, but she’s doing her best!
