A trailer has arrived for Carrie Pilby, a TIFF premiere picked up by The Orchard for release this spring. Bel Powley (The Diary of a Teenage Girl) stars as Carrie, a 19-year-old Harvard grad struggling to understand interpersonal relationships.
Directed by Susan Johnson, Carrie Pilby also stars Jason Ritter, Gabriel Bryne, Nathan Lane, and Vanessa Bayer. It will be in theaters on March 31st and on VOD on April 4th.
Pilby (Powley) is a genius who graduated Harvard at 18. Convinced that the world is populated by oversexed hypocrites, she has a hard time making sense of life as it relates to morality, relationships, sex and leaving her apartment. In an effort to coax Carrie out of her shell, her psychiatrist (Nathan Lane), makes a deceptively simple checklist of goals for her to achieve between Thanksgiving and the year’s end. Each goal brings Carrie closer to the understanding that humans, like books, can’t be judged by their covers.
