Pike plays the character Helen in Lone Scherfig’s adaptation of Lynn Barber’s memoir. Helen and her group of friends encourage a relationship between a 16-year-old schoolgirl and a con-man twice her age. Carey Mulligan and Peter Sarsgaard co-star.
I think my character really engaged people. They realized that I could be funny. People are so keen to pigeonhole you in this industry that to bust out of that is always good.
