Carrie Rickey was born in L.A. around the time the Jennifer Jones/Laurence Olivier movie Carrie hit screens. Hence her name. Since then she's seen more than 12,000 films without losing her love of movies -- or wordplay. But don't envy her job too much. She has to sit through the likes of Battlefield Earth just so she can warn you not to.

An incisive sketch of a college freshman negotiating the light-years between campus and home over Easter break, Bradley Rust Gray's The Exploding Girl is a character study of one young woman - and of an entire generation struggling to maintain external maturity despite internal regression.
As a rule, "No crying in baseball" is a sound principle. But make an exception for The Perfect Game, a very sweet, very slight family movie that scores smiles and tears of joy.
