Movie Info

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. Produced by Suzanne Farwell, Susan Johnson, Susan Cartsonis, Brent Emery and Lisa Wolofsky, CARRIE PILBY was directed by Susan Johnson from a script by Kara Holden. 


Critic Reviews for Carrie Pilby

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (2)

A well-intentioned but imperfect young-adult-skewing comedy-drama.

Top Critic

This is awfully soft stuff, its navel-gazing protagonist not nearly as unusual or delightful as we're meant to think despite the high IQ she can't stop referencing.

Top Critic

Trite and cutesy coming-of-age tale about a super-intelligent young woman who learns a life lesson through taking chances. Purgatory.

Film Journal International

Carrie Pilby is as synthetically directed as it is written, and the performers struggle.

Film Freak Central

This is, ultimately, a very happy and upbeat film, and one with a very clear moral center.

September 19, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

[The film] isn't without cliché or convenience, but it possesses enough heart to combat them.
