Going to Harvard at the age of just 14 and writing "several strongly worded letters to oil companies" by the time you are 6 certainly doesn't classify as normal, and from the looks of the first trailer, Carrie's life does indeed seem anything but conventional. The coming of age comedy is based on Caren Lissner's bestseller and stars Bel Powley (The Diary Of A Teenage Girl) as a young genius who doesn't necessarily know it all.
In the film, written by Kara Holden (Middle School: The Worst Years Of My Life), Carrie, convinced the world is populated by oversexed hypocrites, 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.
With Vanessa Bayer (Trainwreck), William Moseley (The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader), and Jason Ritter (Freddy Vs. Jason) also in the cast, Carrie Pilby will arrive in cinemas 31 March followed by an on demand release 4 April.
