Stephen Holden on THE NANNY DIARIES

From Stephen Holden’s review of The Nanny Diaries in the NEW YORK TIMES: “Just before the big bad wolves — the rich and powerful — are about to devour the Little Red Riding Hoods in these books [Nanny & Prada], they see the light and parachute into improbably soft landings…”  Penny rants: OK, putting Prada aside, I’m now going to let the cat out of the Nanny bag: Annie Braddock doesn’t quit her job; Annie gets fired! If Holden doesn’t understand this, if he’s oblivious to the cataclysmic event in which the entire film culminates, then how can he be trusted to describe its various strengths and weaknesses?   Read my Review of THE NANNY DIARIES on the FWA website.  Read FILMS FOR TWO’s NANNY haiku.  Read my Chat with Prada Screenwriter Aline Brosh McKenna.
