Storyline

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 Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Very wonderful film, all in all
4 November 2013 | by Neotran ArcticSee all my reviews

Being different is not a curse, being powerful is not a curse, the real curse is not being accepted by the society, the curse is not being neglected by people who are weak inside. Carrie is a wonderful movie expressing that aspect which is not talked about often. This movie might be supernatural. But the theme is real, persons like Carrie are real. We might laugh at them, make fun of them but when we get to know the true power of them, the only thing we do is become amazed. Overall, this movie filled up my want from it. Truly loved the movie. But I also looking forward to watch the Carrie(1976) movie......... truly "You will know her name"
