Presenting Miss Pettigrew

The beginning of the year is -- as you’re all probably already painfully aware -- traditionally the dead zone when it comes to new movies. Sure, a couple late Oscar hopeful holdovers might come trickling into the cineplex. But for the most part it’s bottom-of-the-barrel stuff like “Rambo,” “Meet the Spartans” and the preposterously lengthy-titled “In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale.” Oh, Kristanna Loken, really?

So imagine my delight while perusing new movie posters when “Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day” popped up. First of all, ladies looking at other ladies in their knickers is always a good thing. Amy Adams, terrific. Frances McDormand, divine. And then I watched the trailer. English accents, prat falls, 30s glamour and a love four-angle? Sign me up.


Seriously, how fun does that look? Plus Frances’s crazy hair? Sheer genius, I tell you, genius.

I hadn't heard anything about this movie. It's nice to have something fun to look forward to in winter. Thanks for the tip! Amy Adams is swoon-inducing. And Frances McDormand rules (duh).
