About the Movie

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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Ms. Powley is a miracle worker. – Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times, Mar 30, 2017

Rotten: 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. – Dennis Harvey, Variety, Sep 11, 2016

Fresh: A well-intentioned but imperfect young-adult-skewing comedy-drama. – Leslie Felperin, Hollywood Reporter, Sep 19, 2016

Fresh: In her directorial debut, Susan Johnson balances the character's haughty brilliance and aimless privilege with an underlying vulnerability. – Serena Donadoni, Village Voice, Mar 29, 2017
