This made-for-TV remake first aired November 4, 2002, on NBC. Slightly more faithful to the novel it stars Patricia Clarkson as Carrie’s abusive religious-fanatic mother and Angela Bettis as Carrie White, whose shy and awkward demeanor obscures the fact that she is “gifted” with awesome telekinetic powers. As part of a cruel and vicious student prank, Carrie’s better-looking and more socially savvy classmates arrange for the hapless heroine to be elected prom queen…
Gerald Burlingame (Bruce Greenwood) and his wife Jessie (Carla Gugino) attempt to rekindle the flames of their marriage with a retreat to their remote lake house.

Directed by Mike Flanagan.
