Product Description

Gail and Ben have it all, successful careers, a beautiful house, lots of vacations and an amazing nanny for their daughter, Mali. However behind the façade, bad investments have made the family resentful and just about broke.

At the centre of this drama is Mali's young lesbian Mexican nanny, Margarita. Unknown to her employers, Margarita has been working for the family illegally for the past six years but despite all this she is passionate, resourceful and devoted. Although life is not all work for Margarita, shy student Jane is clearly in love with her but is hesitant to bring their relationship out from the closet.

When Gail and Ben decide that the best way for them to save money is by firing Margarita they set off a chain of events that leads to her deportation. The well-meaning couple, now desperate for Margarita to stay in the country, come up with a scheme to keep her around. But on the eve of her departure, Jane arrives with one proposition that changes everything.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, Original, and very Human Canadian Film 12 Jan 2014
By Tommy Dooley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Margarita is a Nanny to a high flying couple with a fourteen year old daughter. She has been with them a number of years and seems to do everything for them as well as being the daughter's best friend, teacher and confidante. She is also a lesbian and has a girlfriend who seems to want to keep her at arms length outside of their physical relationship. Well the couple Ben and Gail have had a run of bad luck in the cash flow department. A string of bad investments and bad career choices has left them financially embarrassed.

Well they have to make cutbacks and so they have to think the unthinkable and `let Margarita go'. Margarita, meanwhile, has spotted the slide in their fortunes and has been doing economy measures for some time, as well as fixing computers, mending the gutter, clearing the drive and servicing the hot tub - she is also drop dead gorgeous. Well once they have told her that she has to go the consequences for everyone become very apparent, very quick - and that's when they find out she is also an illegal immigrant.

This is just a wonderful film, Nicola Correia Damude ('Havana 57') as Margarita is sensational but a special word has to be said for Patrick McKenna as Ben who is marvellous, funny, and an all round entertainer who you can't help feeling sorry for him even when he is trying to fire Margarita. Everyone is great in this and the direction is excellent from Dominique Cardona and Laurie Colbert they worked together before on `Finn's Girl' so they knew they could deliver and deliver they have in absolute spades. One of the best films I have seen for ages and I can not recommend highly enough - a comedy with social comment and a bucket of human emotion and it's Canadian - what is not to like?

4.0 out of 5 stars I'll watch it again 28 Jan 2014
By Hena
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A very enjoyable film, good acting for a change unlike many LGBT films. Storyline was realistic and portrayed well by 'Margarita', not overly sexed up which would have ruined the seriousness of the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely film 28 Mar 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I really liked this film it has a rather simple but very heart warming story, with a nice vein of comedy running throughout - not a Hollywood production but a little Canadian gem that has a great cast of characters that really seem to jell on screen. While the image quality of the DVD is also of a high standard

4.0 out of 5 stars Margarita gets a happy ending. 6 Mar 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It is a sweet film, and i was rooting for her to get her happy end. She did so i am happy. My problem was that my enjoyment was spoiled by the dvd sticking in the last minute of the film, aaarrggh. I returned the dvd and got a replacement, only for the new one to do the same thing. So to watch quite a nice film you have to fiddle about re-setting, messing with the chapters and rewinding from the credits, just to be able to watch the last minute. Shame.
