How much can anyone's life change for the better over the course of 24 hours? Two women are about to find out in the truly delightful Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, an inspiring Cinderella story for grown-ups.
A perfect gift for Mother's Day, Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day is out on DVD on 9 March 2009 and stars Academy Award winner Frances McDormand (Fargo, Burn After Reading, North Country) in the title role opposite Academy Award nominee Amy Adams (Enchanted, Charlie Wilson's War, Junebug). The superb cast also includes Golden Globe Award nominee Lee Pace (Pushing Daisies, The Fall), Ciar�n Hinds (Veronica Guerin, Hallam Foe, Road to Perdition), Shirley Henderson (the Harry Potter films), Mark Strong (Stardust) and screen newcomer Tom Payne. A hugely entertaining screwball comedy set in glamorous 1930's London, the film was directed by Bharat Nalluri (Spooks, Hustle, Life on Mars, Tsunami: The Aftermath), written by David Magee (Finding Neverland) and Golden Globe winning Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire, The Full Monty) and is based on a novel by Winifred Watson.
When dowdy middle-aged governess Guinevere Pettigrew loses her latest job, her luck appears to have run out. Desperate for employment, she shows up at the plush flat of Delysia Lafosse, a glamorous nightclub singer whose desire for celebrity is only eclipsed by her interest in men. Delysia immediately calls on her new "social secretary" to help her juggle her numerous suitors. Finding herself catapulted into the dizzying social whirl of London's high society, every dream that Pettigrew had given up on becomes a reality for 24 hours.
