Movie Summary

Director:
Bharat Nalluri
Released:
2008
Rating:
PG-13
Academy Award nominee Amy Adams (Enchanted) and Academy Award winner Frances McDormand star in this charming comedy about finding a new life and a new love, all in one day. When Miss Pettigrew (McDormand) stumbles upon the chance to become the new "social secretary" to glamorous high-society singer and actress Delysia Lafosse (Adams), she seizes the opportunity despite being totally out of her element. Swept up into the glamorous whirl of high society, it's all Miss Pettigrew can do to keep up with Delysia as she juggles her lovelife and career in this "delightful champagne cocktail of a comedy!" (Leah Rozen, People).
