‘Carrie Pilby’

Book smart but socially inept, an intellectual prodigy attempts to make sense of a nonsensical world in the indie comedy Carrie Pilby. Bel Powley delivers a mesmerizing performance as the titular character whose skewed perspective and acerbic wit both alienate and fascinate those around her. Also starring Nathan Lane, Vanessa Bayer, and Jason Ritter, Carrie Pilby is a must-see for fans of the indie movie genre.
