new favorite

I am an avid watcher of movies - I love them! And actively add movies to my Netflix queue. To my delight, a movie that I was very interested in was available to rent! It arrived Tuesday and I have probably watched it at least 3 times since then (it's only an hour and a half long).

Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day : Starring the ever adorable Amy Adams as Delysia, who also played Giselle in Enchanted (and if you haven't seen that - get on it!), and Frances McDormand as Miss Pettigrew. Drop back into the 1939 - a whirlwind of forbidden passion and love.

Miss Guinevere Pettigrew is a middle-aged governess who finds herself once again unfairly dismissed from her job. Without so much as severance pay, Miss Pettigrew realizes that she must--for the first time in two decades--seize the day. This she does, by intercepting an employment assignment outside of her comfort level--as "social secretary." Arriving at a penthouse apartment for the interview, Miss Pettigrew is catapulted into the glamorous world and dizzying social whirl of an American actress and singer, Delysia Lafosse. Within minutes, Miss Pettigrew finds herself swept into a heady high-society milieu--and, within hours, living it up. Taking the "social secretary" designation to heart, she tries to help her new friend Delysia navigate a love life and career. Over the span of 24 hours, Guinevere and Delysia will empower each other to discover their romantic destinies.

I absolutely enjoyed this movie and was easily swept into the fun and excitement. I tend to get taken into movies easily and feel every bit of emotion they express - I highly recommend this movie to my lady friends!
