The Nanny Diaries

Annie is a fresh out of college and freaked out about where she is going in life. Her mother worked hard to give her the chance to have this “bright” future, and did not buy into Annie’s interest in Anthropology as a real career. Although, when Annie starts going on interviews, she realizes that she doesn’t know who she is or what she wants. Instead she decides to take a job as a nanny in order to give herself some time to figure things out. The world of the upper east side is so foreign and strange that Annie finds her anthropological skills in great use. Her growing relationship with the boy she cares for, Grayer, complicates her feelings towards her job because she doesn’t want to leave him even though the work is thankless. This is a good movie for a raining Saturday afternoon when you want a story that is less about romance and more about finding one’s self.
