The Orchard is proud to introduce another critically acclaimed addition to the early 2017 line-up, the coming-of-age comedy Carrie Pilby. Based on Caren Lissner‘s internationally best-selling novel of the same name, the film stars Bel Powley, Nathan Lane, Vanessa Bayer & more.
The film follows an 18-year-old Harvard grad named Carrie Pilby (Powley) that cannot find much reason to leave her apartment. To her, everyone around her is a one-dimensional, oversexed phony. Taking on the seemingly insurmountable task of understanding the wild world around her, Carrie adopts a one-month checklist put forth by a psychiatrist (Lane). With each completed check comes a small step toward realizing that there is much more to people than she thought.
After the movie’s amazing reception at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, The Orchard is delighted to share Carrie Pilby with North America early next year.
