Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day

"After losing yet another nanny position because of her gruff demeanor, Guinevere Pettigrew (Frances McDormand) mistakenly lands an assignment as the assistant of an American starlet (Amy Adams) and finds herself swept up in a dizzying world of glamour and high society. Based on the novel by Winifred Watson, this charming 1940s-era tale also stars CiarĂ¡n Hinds, Lee Pace, Shirley Henderson and Mark Strong." courtesy of netflix

I enjoyed this movie, it was entertaining and the acting was quite good. I did feel like something was missing, it seemed like maybe it was too short (but it was an hour and a half) but because the plot of the story is essentially Miss Pettigrew's day with Delysia (Amy Adams) it just seems a little unfufilled. and i dont think they quite captured some of the behavior that needed to be setup; Amy Adams is an actress and has many male friends and although you realize and its conveyed that Miss Pettigrew is appalled by this I think it needed to be a stronger connection and I think they needed more information about Miss Pettigrew before she met Delysia. and the ending was quite, abrupt? it had an ending but it just didnt seem over i guess; it was a weak ending in a way.
