    Carrie White is the fictional telekinetic high-school female student from the iconic American horror-film Carrie. Brandon Darrow is the fictional unruly movie superstar from Woody Allen's iconic American fame-sardonic film Celebrity.

    Carrie is an homage to films like Frankenstein and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, while Celebrity is an homage to films like La Dolce Vita and Oh God! You Devil.

    Carrie White and Brandon Darrow are diametric opposites in cinematic history, and we can think about how these two movie characters symbolize an American rapture towards culture-psyche trends (towards discretion and gossip). Carrie is a tragic character reminding us of the need for privacy, while Brandon is a morality-fable figure reminding us of the reality of idolatry.

    Americans love media and socialization intrigue, which makes Carrie and Brandon reflective of the American 'aesthetic.' The Cardigans 1990s pop-rock song Lovefool captures a post-1980s American sociocultural interest in lifestyle-exuberance oriented storytelling, and Carrie and Brandon invite us to think about why the American Dream promotes customs imagination. Customs-evaluation is important for our pluralistic society, lest we give in to basic instincts such as racism, lust, arrogance, and slander.
