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 n... read more

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

" Picture of Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day "


Kami Sama posted a review 4 years, 9 months ago

“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

“To be honest, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this movie but since I always had a weak spot for Frances McDormand, I thought I might check it out. Next to her, Amy Adams was playing the other lead and that’s something that worried me at first. Nowadays, Amy Adams is probably one of the most heralded actresses at work and it shouldn’t take much longer before she wins her first Academy award (she has been already nominated 5 times in the last 10 years). Personally, I must admit that I always had a hard time with this actress and it is only recently that I started to really appreciate her more. Basically, the main issue I always had with her is that she kept playing some supposedly quirky but eventually rather annoying characters and this movie was a perfect example. Still, eve” read more

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

Making your luck

“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.
