Nanny McPhee

The UK’s national treasure Emma Thompson is transformative in the role of Nanny McPhee (she also adapted the children’s book for the screen), in this colourful Mary Poppins-esque family adventure (albeit with a darker underbelly). Also starring British actors Colin Firth and Kelly Macdonald, Imelda Staunton and Angela Lansbury.





Widower Cedric Brown (Colin Firth) hires Nanny McPhee (Emma Thompson) to care for his seven mischievous children, whose antics have frightened off all other nannies. But Nanny McPhee has mystical powers that instil discipline and under her care, the family thrives.
