Our next Rialto Recommends is 2008's delightful MISS PETTIGREW LIVES FOR A DAY starring Frances McDormand and Amy Adams. It's 1939 and governess Guinevere Pettigrew finds herself out of work and on the bread line. Middle-aged and running out of options, Miss Pettigrew takes an uncharacteristic gamble when, after being refused work at an employment agency,she steals the details of a juicy assignment and pursues the job herself. MISS PETTIGREW LIVES FOR A DAY is a breezy period comedy carried by the strong performances of Amy Adams and Frances McDormand. USA Today raved "Based on the 1938 novel by Winifred Watson, Miss Pettigrew is a veritable treat. Wisely cast, this handsome production is a delightful farcical fairy tale, bolstered by moments of depth and emotion." While the Washington Post said "MISS PETTIGREW LIVES FOR A DAY sparkles like a rhinestone in the muck." MISS PETTIGREW LIVES FOR A DAY is streaming on HBO and HBOMax or available to rent for a modest fee from Apple, Amazon, GooglePlay, YouTube, Vudu, DirectTV and others.
