Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day

Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day
Director: Bharat Nalluri

Starring: Frances McDorman, Amy Adams, Ciaran Hinds, Shirley Henderson

Miss Pettigrew can't keep a job as a nanny and finds herself the unsuspecting social secretary to singer Delysia, who wants to be an actress. Will Delysia go to America with her handsome piano player, who loves her, or stay where it's emotionally "safe" with playboy Nick? And will Miss Pettigrew be discovered as a fraud?

Set during WWII, and taking place over 24 hours, Miss Pettigrew is a charming movie with likeable characters, good writing, good acting, and excellent costumes and props. A very enjoyable diversion! :)

First seen: in theatre, May (?) 2008
