It is also available on Amazon and iTunes.The film, Carrie Pilby, stars Bel Powley as 19-year-old genius who graduates from Harvard three years early and moves to New York City. She’s confused about how to make friends and date. She tries to make sense of life’s hypocrisies, all while meeting an unusual cast of characters and dealing with a past inappropriate relationship with a college professor (Colin O’Donoghue). Her therapist, played by Nathan Lane, is perhaps the only person sharp enough to match wits with her.The book, available new on Amazon, has been translated into Spanish, French, Italian, Malay, and Thai.The film also stars Gabriel Byrne (“The Usual Suspects”, “Miller’s Crossing”), Vanessa Bayer (“Saturday Night Live”), William Moseley, Jason Ritter, and Desmin Borges.Those who want to see it on cable can check their alphabetical list of on-demand movies.
