The Nanny Diaries Hits Cinemas
Hitting cinemas across the UK this weekend is ‘The Nanny Diaries’ an intelligent satire starring Scarlett Johansson and Laura Linney based on the novel by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus.
Johansson plays Annie Braddock, a young working class girl from the wrong side of the New York tracks facing pressure from her mother to find a respectable job in the world of business.
A chance meeting leads to her swapping her mother’s gift of a smart business suit for a job as a nanny to one of Manhattan’s wealthy but dysfunctional families referred to as simply “the X’s.
She quickly learns that life is not very rosy on the other side of the tax bracket, as she must cater to the every whim of Mrs. X (Linney) and her precocious son Grayer, while attempting to avoid the formidable Mr. X (Giamatti). Life becomes even more complicated when Annie falls for a gorgeous Park Avenue Hottie (Evans), and she’s forced to re-examine her life and the direction in which it is headed.
