A Day Like No Other

Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day DVD coverWhen failed governess Guinevere Pettigrew answers an advertisement for a position as social secretary to singer Delysia Lafosse, she has no idea what is in store.  Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day is a lighthearted romp featuring a colorful cast of characters and pitch-perfect performances.  Miss Pettigrew (Frances McDormand) is hired to help Delysia (the irrepressible Amy Adams) juggle the three men she is seeing in her pursuit of stardom, luxury, and affection.  Thrown into situations quite different from her own sheltered life, Miss Pettigrew discovers talents she didn’t know she possessed and even finds herself noticed by a sophisticated businessman.  Also starring Ciarán Hinds and Lee Pace, Miss Pettigrew is a fun contemporary spin on the classic screwball comedy.
