Story


The quiet suburb of Chamberlain, Maine is home to the deeply religious and conservative Margaret White (Moore) and her daughter Carrie (Moretz). Carrie is a sweet but meek outcast whom Margaret has sheltered from society. Gym teacher Miss Desjardin (Greer) tries in vain to protect Carrie from local mean girls led by the popular and haughty Chris Hargenson (Portia Doubleday, Youth in Revolt), but only Chris' best friend, Sue Snell (Gabriella Wilde, The Three Musketeers), regrets their actions. In an effort to make amends, Sue asks her boyfriend, high school heartthrob Tommy Ross (newcomer Ansel Elgort), to take Carrie to prom. Pushed to the limit by her peers at the dance, Carrie unleashes telekinetic havoc.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..it's a good guess that it won't be the movie that you will be thinking about, but recent headlines..”
by Manohla Dargis [New York Times]
“..rather than offering new blood, Carrie is a purely cosmetic revamp..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..the results are distressingly anemic, pig blood and all..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
