Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day

I had to wait two months, I finally got
my copy of Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day
from my local library.I missed it when it
came out in the movies last year. It is a
delightful movie. Full of comedy, romance, fun.

Frances McDormand plays Guinevere Pettigrew,
a London governess who has a habit of being
too outspoken though she has a good heart.
She is tossed out of her latest job. A series
of events leads Miss Pettigrew to meet the
the glam Delysia LaFosse (Amy Adams); and,
gets swept up into Delysia's life finding
out that one day can change a life forever.

Oh, the clothes, the furniture and the music.
I love 40's music and fashions!!

If you need a pick me up or want to unplug
from the holiday merry go around. Watch
Miss Pettigrew lives for a Day. You will
be enchanted, trust me.

For all you Pushing Daisies fan, Lee Pace
is in it too! Truly, it's stock full of great
actors. Frances and Amy play their parts to

Of course, here is a trailer to whet the
appetites. This is the kind of movie
I like to do. Uplifting and full of fun.

Dear Shell,
I love this movie! I caught it once on HBO or STARZ I can't remember.
Amy Adams is such a doll. I love the music and fashions too. Such a feel~good movie. More need to be made like this!

I loved this movie - we saw it in the theatre and then watched it again on HBO. Great style - and very clever.

By the way - congrats on the win over at Voodoo Lounge!

Hey Shell, I can't wait to see this movie! I sooooo agree with you about the time and the clothes and everything. WOW! It looks like it's going to be something fun and so special. I love these kinds of movies. I wish we could find a designer that could redo these kinds of clothes for now and for big gurls! I always said that I would some day create a wonderful line of clothing with star appeal for the regular girls with body and boobs. It will be called "Fluffy" he he he! I'm serious it's not even funny! I can't stand some of the clothing that out for larger woman. Thanks for sharing this. I wish you a very happy and Merry Holiday!! Hugs

Hi, Shell! I just loved this film too... a very playful romp, very jazzy and stylish. It's been a while since I saw to definitely watch again and again. Happy week! :o) ((HUGS))

Hi Shell. I remember this trailer just before the film came out. I love Frances McDormand, she is such a great actress. I loved her in Burn After Reading.

You always enlighten us to new, fun, and whimsical romantic films. I love this blog and you.

Have a great evening, my dear.
