Monday Musings: Nanny McPhee

I rewatched Nanny McPhee (2005/PG) last week as part of Firth February and had forgotten how delightful the movie is! There are so many familiar faces: Colin Firth, Emma Thompson, Imelda Staunton, Derek Jacobi, and Angela Lansbury, to name the most memorable. It's a bit of over-the-top whimsy that felt just right this dreary month. Thompson and Firth are both enjoyable, as usual, and the character of Nanny McPhee is interesting and fun to watch, as she guides the children to learn what is most valuable--their family and their love for each other. I particularly enjoyed the rollicking and then fairy-tale ending, and seeing favorite actors together in a comical yet touching movie. I give it four Firths. ;)
