Nanny McPhee

Poster for Nanny McPhee

British children's fantasy starring Emma Thompson (Love Actually) as a magical governess - but this nanny is no Mary Poppins. Widowed undertaker Mr. Brown (Colin Firth, The King's Speech) must find a governess for his seven unruly children. He employs the mysterious Nanny McPhee, a frightening old maid with a no nonsense attitude and magical powers. More

The Brown children make it their mission to drive her away, as they have done the last 17 nannies. When Mr. Brown's Aunt Adelaide (Angela Lansbury, Mr. Popper's Penguins) threatens to cut off his inheritance and break up the family if he can't find a wife within the month, the children turn to Nanny McPhee for help. 

Based on the Nurse Matilda children's books, Emma Thompson stars and also wrote the screenplay.

Endearing but somewhat scatterbrained.

Frothy and fun yet deliciously dark, this may be eclipsed by next month’s Harry Potter but should be sought out for its own, equally entertaining, magical charm.

Like Roald Dahl's idea of ''Mary Poppins"...
