Brian De Palma • USA • 1976 • Digital • 98 mins • Rated 18
Brian de Palma's chilling adaptation of Stephen King's novel is the epitome of teen angst, high school cruelty, and questionable parental authority — and then some. Carrie White is a shy, friendless teenager who suspects that she is developing supernatural powers. Oppressed and tortured by her fanatically religious mother, and ignored and humiliated at school, Carrie tries to let her guard down when she receives a surprising invite to the prom from a high school heart-throb.
Are Carrie's dreams coming true, or is everyone else about to enter into a nightmare?
This screening will be followed by an informal discussion about the themes explored in Carrie
