Nancy Drew is a 2007 mystery featuring favorite teen detective Nancy Drew (Emma Roberts). Nancy and her father, Carson Drew (Tate Donovan), are in Los Angeles for an extended visit. Carson is there on business, Nancy is there to attend high school. They move into an old and spooky mansion in the Hollywood Hills. Carson tells Nancy not to get involved in any sleuthing and to concentrate on high school and being normal. As luck would have it, the mansion they move into was once the home of movie star Dehlia Draycott (Laura Harring). Dehlia lived in the mansion for years then died mysteriously. In true detective style, Nancy delves into finding Dehlia's killer and gets caught up in a mystery involving the movie star, a daughter and a huge inheritance. With the help of Ned Nickerson (Max Thieriot) Nancy sets out to solve the mystery and navigate her new high school and new city.
