Nanny McPhee (21-Oct-2005)

Director: Kirk Jones

Writer: Emma Thompson

From novel by: Christianna Brand

Keywords: Comedy

A magical woman with an unsettling appearance profoundly influences a family after taking a job as their nanny.

Cedric Brown, a recently widowed British man, faces immense difficulties reining in the mischievous and destructive behavior of his seven children to the point that seventeen nannies have refused to look after them. A mysterious voice directs Cedric to hire the services of a magical, yet off-putting, woman named Nanny McPhee; he acquiesces, bringing the lady into his world as she begins to change the Brown clan's lives for the better while strangely improving her own appearance.
