A breath of fresh air

A breath of fresh air. A bit of a Salinger's catcher in the rye in it. Infused with good values and so a drop of a bit of an antidote to an increasingly cynical society. Feel good and a pleasant hour and a half.

The source of pain and also strength!

Carrie is a young Harvard graduate, healthy and pretty, and she lives in a New York City apartment paid for by her Dad. Despite such advantages, she is crippled by fear and insecurity. Stung by human cruelty and indifference, Carrie has become cynical, defensive and a loner without a job or purpose. Her fastidious nature only digs more holes for herself. Luckily, Carrie's therapist has a plan to get her out of the funk. Despite the straightforward and simple nature of the plan which requires that Carrie merely re-read a favorite book, find a friend, go on a date, get a pet and do something she loved as a child, Carrie balks, struggles and finds snarky ways to cut corners. Though Carrie struggles, the plan begins to work its magic in getting her to engage with the world again. She finds that the source of her pain is also the source of her strength.

The main actor, Bel Powley, is charming and a wonder to watch. The dialogue is sharp and funny. I loved the theme of the story; a good person who is wounded emotionally and struggling with their innate power. In Carrie there is this timeless hero myth retold from a female perspective for a change. It is refreshing. The film is based on a book of the same name. The film gets a little clunky when it relies too heavily on lines. It then has a preordained quality like lemmings going to the sea. Overall, though, it is alluring and clever. Seen at the Miami International Film Festival.

Full of laughs and also makes you think

I was so excited to see this film at the Toronto filmfest last week. You might enjoy it because it's very funny - a hyper verbal genius, 19 and a year out of college, taking on the hypocrisies of adulthood, and sparring with therapist (Nathan Lane) and some other interesting characters. Some of the jokes were dry and some more obvious. But there's a lot to make you think besides just laughing. I enjoyed seeing 19-yar-old Carrie's beliefs challenged in so many different ways. She sets out to expose a few "cheaters" in society but is surprised to find the situations not as black and white as she thought. Isn't that what we all learn as we grow? Ultimately she does the right thing, but it's not always easy. I am leaving out the spoilers but I just want to say that you will be surprised by a few of the twists and turns. I haven't read the book it's based on so I can't compare it to that, but I will say that it's funny, charming and I LOVE the actors. I think this movie will do well with an audience like me, recent college grads and anyone in 30s/40s/50s questioning where they fit into the world.. Can't wait till its in theaters so I can bring friends!
