4.0 out of 5 stars Charm, style and champagne fizz make this a vibrant film, 22 Sept. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day [DVD] (DVD)
Very definitely set in the Phoney War period post September 1939, this is a 1920's style comedy that fizzes and pops on the screen, with a fast pace, good acting and great comedic timing. This style and this subject matter will not be to everyone's taste, maybe not even to the same person on a different day. But if you're in the mood to be entertained, this film does it in spades, with enough irony, seriousness of message and pathos in its quieter moments to merit being taken seriously. So, even if you are put off by the manic first twenty minutes after Miss Pettigrew and Delyssia Defosse meet, persevere, because it is very likely you'll be won over to its charms in the end. The leads are excellent, especially Frances McDormand and Amy Adams, and Oklahoma-born Lee Pace's soft Midlands accent had me fooled, absolutely.
