Big Screen: Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day

So one day someone said to themselves, “Hey! I think I’ll take this little, charming, fun, engaging book (that in many ways is about female friendship)…and I’ll throw in a little World War II (and transfer the American depression onto London) and turn it into a moody, dramatic, cat-fight-full film! It’s just not good enough the way it is!” Seriously bad idea.
Some good acting but in a convoluted messed up plot created solely because… because the book was too lighthearted? Because movie producers are idiots?
Read the book, skip the movie.
