I remember seeing the preview for this movie this past winter, and thinking it looked interesting. But what I saw was nothing like what I'd expected. Francis and Amy did an incredible job of pulling my interest throughout the story, and the setting was one that I find quite fascinating--England in the late thirties.

This was such a sweet film. I loved that it was a Period piece and a Romantic comedy all rolled into one satisfying package of fun and charming cinema. Watch it if you haven't already, because you won't be disappointed

"A fun adventure comedy essentially set in one place. McDormand and Adams play off each other well. The music and singing and ending all make it a nice piece of good old-fashioned entertainment."

“For some people this move will be boring or just maybe to long. But I love it. I just adore that age music, clothing, people manners. This is like a fairytale staring - Miss Pettingrew. Nice Cinderella story.” read more

A charming movie

“I thought it was pretty good. I really like Frances McDormand and she was very good as usual and Amy Adams was just perfect for the role. It was a beautiful movie aswell(decors, costums, mood, directing,...). It is nothing great but it is enjoyable movie and it is definitely worth a look.” read more

Every Woman Will Have Her Day.

“''Not everything comes along just when we want it. There are times when decisions just have to be made, or you certainly will miss out.''

Guinevere Pettigrew, a middle-aged London governess, finds herself unfairly dismissed from her job. An attempt to gain new employment catapults her into the glamorous world and dizzying social whirl of an American actress and singer, Delysia Lafosse.

Amy Adams; Delysia Lafosse

Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day is a lovely, quaint film breathing life into the romantic comedy genre. The film shows the benefit of submerging to literature for inspiration and it develops its characters well because of it. Miss Pettigrew and Delysia both possess the characteristics the other lacks and compliment themselves, throughout the entire 90 ” read more

“I remember seeing the preview for this movie this past winter, and thinking it looked interesting. But what I saw was nothing like what I'd expected. Francis and Amy did an incredible job of pulling my interest throughout the story, and the setting was one that I find quite fascinating--England in the late thirties.

Francis's character is easy to empathise with, even if Amy's is not. She's the common woman just trying to make her way in a hard world (not unlike the world of today). Amy's is a flitting gadabout that is fun to watch, even as you want to pin her to a chair and tell her to grown up.

Most of all, I enjoy the idea of the story--one day that changes both womens' lives. Francis finds her place in life, and Amy makes the choice for her future.
