A suburban family chooses seemingly sweet Peyton Flanders (Rebecca De Mornay) as their newborn's nanny. Only much later does the infant's mother, Claire Bartel (Annabella Sciorra), realize Peyton's true intentions -- to destroy Claire and replace her in the family. The nail-biting suspense builds quickly in this chilling psychological thriller about deception and bitter revenge. Julianne Moore co-stars as Claire's sassy real-estate-agent friend.

"13.7. (DVD) #leffahaaste2018 Tässä oli sitten elokuva vanhemmuudesta, joka oli kyllä niin vitun ysäriä kuin olla voi.

Silti pidin tästä jotenkin turhan paljon."
