Carrie and her gym teacher talking.
  Carrie is one of my absolute favorite movies. I just watched it for maybe the third time yesterday because I recently found the book at a local consignment shop, and I have to say, I love both. Both the imagery and dialogue are incredibly great in both, but in the movie, the soundtrack adds an extra affect. But this movie and book got me thinking... why are people considered ugly? In the movie, Carrie is absolutely beautiful. Of course, she is played by Sissy Spacek, who I personally find adorable, but the character of Carrie in the movie is very likable to me. So what if she isn't too well in gym class? She seemed like a nice girl who just wanted to fit in. (Some of these images may spoil the movie!)
  I've provided a playlist that at first was supposed to be of songs that reminded me of Carrie, but when I couldn't find too many, I just made a list of songs with girls names in the title. Enjoy!

  themadmod also has a great Carrie post, I swear I didn't copy her though!
