Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day (2008)

I feel that this story floats above the city scape and doesn't really touch the ground until the end. 

Miss Pettigrew, played by an ever expressive Frances McDormand, locks herself into a role of personal secretary to a flighty singer/actress for a day. Pettigrew is a housekeeper, broke and old-fashioned so this new accidental job takes her quite by surprise. 

The story is a battle between old and new values: love vs. money, integrity vs. fame, honesty vs. image, substance vs. style. A pleasant film to watch, though not particularly life-changing.
