LOVE LOVE LOVE everyone in this film and everyone behind the film. This is not only a chick flick!
8 April 2017 | by kerri_leigh80See all my reviews

I loved Carrie Pilby from the beginning to the end and I was very lucky enough to see the premiere at TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) and I honestly could not wait to watch the film again (up to 3 viewings now). The script, the characters and scenes are all adored and beautiful, and speaks loud. I loved all the lines and creativity brought to the big screen by Bel Powley's as Carrie PIlby. Her beauty, charm, wittiness brings 100% delight through out the film. Great choice in main actress, and every girl can truly understand and can relate to Carrie, when trying to find purpose in life. This a an awesome film for men to watch and learn too, not just the ladies. Although the ladies do have great eye candies by the talents of Jason Ritter, Colin O'Donogue, and William Moseley. Other standout favourite cast is Vanessa Bayer, Nathan Lane, and Gabriel Byrne. Susan Johnson, Kara Holden, and Caren Lissner all deserve a standing ovation for a great film. Recommend highly to watch this fuzzy, heartwarming film that will leaving you wanting to watch more.
