The Nanny Diaries

We saw this film yesterday, and it's better than the trailer might indicate, actually. While it has been compared to "The Devil Wears Prada," this movie is different - softer and more warm hearted. The actors are very good. Scarlett Johansson (The Girl With The Pearl Earring) does a good job of capturing the confusion of a young college grad who decides to go to work as a nanny while still trying to make up her mind about a career path. Donna Murphy plays the nanny's devoted mother, worried about her daughter's future. Alicia Keys is believable as the nasty upper East Side matriarch. John Henry Cox is the male eye candy playing the nanny's boy friend. It's worth seeing this one.
