Finally caught Ms. Pettigrew on the big screen…well DVD

I recently watched the movie version of Ms. Pettigrew Lives for a Day . I read it a few months ago and loved it. I recently re-subscribed to Netflix and Ms. Pettigrew was the first that I sat down to watch. The movie was charming and more upbeat than I expected. Released in 2008, Francis McDormand plays Ms. Pettigrew who actually steals her new assignment as a social secretary from the agency and Amy Adams plays Delysia LaFosse who is a singer and actress with one too many boyfriends. Many details were changed from Winifred Watson’s book and surprisingly I didn’t mind that much. I’m usually a stickler for picking out changed details in a book to movie adaptation. Ms. Pettigrew’s day progresses at break-neck speed as she keeps up with Delysia’s endless engagements. Who can’t love a 1930s era soundtrack and high society glitz and glamor. Apparently no one. Not even an air raid could stop the party.
