Carrie White is a lonely and painfully shy teenage girl with telekinetic powers who is slowly pushed to the edge of insanity by frequent bullying from both her classmates and her domineering, religious mother.
The outcast teenager Carrie White is bullied by her classmates at high school. Her mother, Margaret White, is a pious and paranoid woman that sees sin everywhere and the need of self-inflicting punishment. When Carrie has her first period, she does not understand what is happening to her and her classmates humiliate her in the changing room. The spiteful Chris Hargensen videotapes Carrie with her cell phone and posts it on the Internet. Their teacher Ms. Desjardin punishes the students, but when Chris challenges her, she is suspended and consequently is banned from the prom. Meanwhile, Carrie discovers that she has telekinesis and learns how to control her ability. Sue Snell, one of the girls that tormented Carrie, feels bad and asks her boyfriend Tommy Ross to invite Carrie to go with him to the prom to make up for what she did to Carrie. But Chris and her boyfriend Billy Nolan plot an evil prank with her friends to seek vengeance for Carrie.Written by

When Sue centers the gym she has plenty of time to warn her boyfriend and Carrie that Chris is planning something. Instead, she asks where to find Chris. This doesn't make sense; if she asked both to not enter the stage, nothing would have happened, the bucket full of blood and Chris would have been discovered. Regarding the text she received, it is obvious that something might happen. The fact that it didn't happen already makes it obvious that it will happen. See more »
She is the basic motif to see this not bad but far to be the most inspired version of Stephen King's Carrie. It is the film for young public. Not only for the presence of the every day technology, but for the traits of teenagers films. Julianne Moore has the virtue to remind the source. And Chloe Grace Moretz - to give a decent performance for a role who preserves deep shadow of great Sissy Spacek . maybe, I am too old for enjoy this version. Who must be for the desire to serve the new expectations of public. But the basic good points of it are the performance of Julianne Moore as the mother and the invitation to read (again) the novel.
