In The Carrie Diaries, AnnaSophia Robb (Soul Surfer) stars as a young Carrie Bradshaw known best from Sex and the City. For fans of the original show, Sex and the City stands out in subtle hints from the infamous Carrie closet to Carrie’s voice-over narration. However, the most invigorating part of the show shines through on the 1980s setting. Look for the vast soundtrack of 80’s hits from “Living in the Material World” to “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” as well as the fashion of high-waisted jeans to colorful headbands.
Fans of the original show will love the same gossip on boys the teens engage in on the show with a young twist of lingo like “a hot dog in a keyhole.” For the first time, the bold moves seen in The City are positioned in a young atmosphere. Carrie and her girlfriends, Maggie and Mouse, describe sex with the same candidness as Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte, and Samantha would. Unlike Sex and the City, Carrie has not yet matured and developed into the mature, sexually experienced woman writing her column about sex. This prequel will give all the fans of Sex and the City the background on Carrie’s life they never got. Suddenly, Carrie has a family and roots that explain her confidence and love for Manhattan. Her trip to New York City transforms her immediately and the Carrie Bradshaw we know and love begins to sparkle.
