PG-13 | | Comedy, Romance
Guinevere Pettigrew, a middle-aged London governess, finds herself unfairly dismissed from her job. An attempt to gain new employment catapults her into the glamorous world and dizzying social whirl of an American actress and singer, Delysia Lafosse.
Amy Adams said in an interview, "I would like to see "Miss Pettigrew" on Broadway! There's that one musical number in it now, and I think there's room for more."
Forgive the intrusion. I'm glad to see you're safe.
Guinevere Pettigrew: Oh yes, quite safe.
Joe Blumfield: Am I right in thinking you're no longer employed, Miss Pettigrew?
Guinevere Pettigrew: Quite correct.
Joe Blumfield: So you're free?
Guinevere Pettigrew: Quite free. Might you be looking for a social secretary?
Joe Blumfield: No, absolutely not.
Guinevere Pettigrew: Oh.
At the big party, when Miss Pettigrew talks with Joe on the balcony, the boom mic is visible moving back and forth between characters in the reflection of the windows.
Before the end credits, there is a black screen and a voice calling "some music please", after which music starts playing and the credits start rolling.
