The title compound, C23H17F6NO, crystallizes with two mol­ecules in the asymmetric unit. The mol­ecules assume an approximate propellar shape, with the three aromatic rings being bent with respect to the plane formed by the C atoms that are connected to the methine C atom [dihedral angles: pyridyl 67.49 (3)°, phenyl 56.82 (4)° and phenyl 77.21 (6)° in one mol­ecule, and corresponding angles of 71.60 (6), 53.68 (4) and 77.53 (6)° in the second mol­ecule].
