Becky and I went to see Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day at the AMC theaters in Highlands Ranch, Colorado on Friday. The Fandango website at Miss Pettigrew Lives fo a Day describes the movie as follows:
“In 1939 London, Miss Guinevere Pettigrew (Frances McDormand) is a middle-aged governess who finds herself once again unfairly dismissed from her job. Without so much as severance pay, Miss Pettigrew realizes that she must – for the first time in two decades – seize the day. This she does, by intercepting an employment assignment outside of her comfort level – as “social secretary.” Arriving at a penthouse apartment for the interview, Miss Pettigrew is catapulted into the glamorous world and dizzying social whirl of an American actress and singer, Delysia Lafosse (Amy Adams).”
Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day
is more like watching a play than a movie. It was done quite well though and it was a good story about not judging a person by their outward appearance and that tough times can change anyone, if they let them. The story was rather interesting and there are a number of twists and turns in the plot. The acting of the two women, played by Frances McDormand and Amy Adams, was really great ,although the men in the movie were a bit overbearing. The chemistry between the main characters and their differences in opinion about life, telling the truth and men was quite entertaining.
Becky and I both liked the movie, although we would suggest waiting for the rental rack to see it. It was a good flick, but it wasn’t a great flick. Probably because it was more like a play than a movie. Since the cost for a movie at the theater is now two to three gallons of gas in your tank, you should probably wait to see this one at home.
