My Review:

The always-wonderful Frances McDormand plays Miss Pettigrew, a down on her luck nanny without a job.  She stumbles her way into an interview, and ends up spending the day as a social secretary.  Amy Adams, hot off of “Enchanted,” plays Delysia LaFosse, an aspiring actress/socialite in London at the beginning of World War 2. The two need each other, and end up helping each other.

Sweet, lovely, fun, whimsical.  Loved it!
