DIANNE BUT­LER OUT OF THE BOX

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Friday - THE CAR­RIE DI­ARIES, FOX8, 8.30pm

OK, this isn’t Sex and the City. It’s not even be­fore Sex and the City. It’s based on a book. So just for­get ev­ery­thing you know and think of it as a whole new show. It’ll be easy, be­cause apart from the name, noth­ing else is the same. Anna Sophia Robb doesn’t look like Sarah Jes­sica Parker. She doesn’t smoke. She’s a vir­gin. She’s got one sis­ter. She’s at school but al­ready mov­ing in a fast Man­hat­tan crowd, thanks to her new friend Larissa. Her clothes are ugly — it’s 1984, so ev­ery­one’s are. Yes, 1984. Which means this Car­rie is also younger than she would be if she was the other Car­rie.
