Carrie Pilby Description

Carrie Pilby (Bel Powley) is a 19-year old genius, a year out of Harvard, and living in New York City. Burdened with an overactive moral compass in a world she considers to be populated by oversexed, deceitful hypocrites, Carrie finds herself isolated, friendless, dateless and unemployed. When Carrie’s absentee father (Gabriel Byrne) insists she get a roommate or a job, and her psychiatrist (Nathan Lane) makes a list of goals she is to achieve between Thanksgiving and the end of the year, Carrie resists the mundane until her goal-oriented brain forces her to embrace these tasks with a vengeance. Others who unwittingly help Carrie achieve her goals include Cy (William Moseley), her didgeridoo-playing musical prodigy neighbor; engaged and confused Matt (Jason Ritter) who sincerely believes that cheating will bring him clarity; Carrie’s former Harvard professor Harrison (Colin O’Donoghue), the genesis of everything Carrie hates; and new boss Tara (Vanessa Bayer), who convinces Carrie that it’s not her job to be the moral guardian of the human race. Against best efforts, Carrie evolves into the compassionate person she never knew she wanted to be in this unique and charming comedy.
A person of high intelligence struggles to make sense of the world as it relates to morality, relationships, sex and leaving her apartment.
Awkward, isolated and disapproving of most of the people around her, a precocious 19-year-old genius is challenged to put her convictions to the test by venturing out on to the NYC dating scene, in this adaptation of Caren Lissner’s best-selling 2003 novel.

  • Carrie Pilby

    Finally a romantic comedy that makes you laugh, is poignant and has you smiling at the end. Great character development and photography. If you like romantic comedies, definitely see.
  • Bel Powley is a gem

    Twelve Point
    This film is charming and sweet, but the lovely leading lady makes it a joy to watch. If you are looking for a fun diversion Carrie Pilby is a great choice.
  • Charming Film

    I recommend this charming film. It's significantly better than the trailer, which led me to believe that it would only be a 2-Star movie. Also, as others have said, it's believable.
  • Sweet

    Darling story about the secrets to the one has them. The lead actress is earnest in her character, which was superbly done. The movie dragged in parts...for example, when the lead moralized. But otherwise, absorbing & fun.
  • Best Move I've Seen In Some Time

    This is such a sweet, funny movie. It has heart. Powley's dialogue is intelligent and enjoyable. The feel is pure New York. The scenes make you feel you are living there and you want to stay a long time, maybe get to know someone like Powley. The above critics aren't as smart as the movie. The film does resort to conceits from time to time, but movie making is a craft after all. Best ending ever.
  • Carrie Pilby - joyful!!

    What a cute little film! I highly recommend it; it will make you smile!
  • Phenomenal

    I am very picky when it comes to seeing a film in its entirety but this movie was so good I watched the whole film! The main character is such a divine human and I loved every minute of this film. All of the characters were perfectly casted.
  • It's okay to be happy!

    In a world where it's easy to get lost in your life's journey. It's nice to know that things can work out for the best.
