Rating 4/5

Family fantasy. 2010. 105 min. With Emma Thompson, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Rhys Ifans. Director: Susanna White. PG.

Trying to keep the family farm going while her husband is away at war, Mrs Green (Gyllenhaal) is being driven mad by a house full of unruly kids. With the no-good Uncle Phil (Ifans) trying to trick her into signing the farm away she’s at the end of her tether. Thenamysterious, buck-toothed nanny with magical powers arrives on her doorstep... Nanny McPhee is an unforgettable character played to perfection by Thompson, who also wrote the witty script based on the popular Nurse Matilda books. The big-name cast doesn’t put a foot wrong and the art direction wonderfully recreates war-time England. With tons of action, mystery, intrigue and comedy this is excellent, fun viewing for the entire family. Bonus: commentary, featurettes, deleted scenes.
