The film stars Nathan Lane, Bel Powley, Gabriel Byrne, Vanessa Bayer, Jason Ritter, Colin O'Donoughue, and several other big names. It's directed by Susan Johnson.
Powley, a British actress who won raves last year in independent film “Diary of a Teenage Girl,” plays young genius Carrie, who graduated from Harvard three years early and now finds herself alone in New York City at 19 years old. The film follows her awkward dates and faux pas as she tries to make sense of the world as it relates to sex, morality, and relationships.
In the beginning of the film, she has a know-it-all attitude and frustration with the “hypocrites” around her in the adult world, but gradually softens as she meets with her psychiatrist, played by Nathan Lane.
