"Acting, of course, has something to do with it. But the charm that emanates from Amy Adams like a perfume in MISS PETTIGREW LIVES FOR A DAY is also a natural gift."New York Times "[P]articularly effective and cheeky....Adams and McDormand's performances and winning chemistry are the heart and soul of this screwball comedy set in London in 1939."USA Today "Bharat Nalluri directs with a light touch and a great eye for costumes and sets....It's pure romantic fantasy..."Los Angeles Times "[Adams] is a peach. Her sparkle requires only minor character adjustment and twinkle recharging from her recent triumph as the old-fashioned modern heroine in ENCHANTED."Entertainment Weekly "Clearly no expense has been spared in recreating the backdrop of pre-War London. The make-up and costumes, too, are sensational."Sight and Sound 4 stars out of 5 -- "McDormand's comic timing is genius....[Her character's] plight and grateful pleasure for a grand day out feels genuine, insightful and touching."Empire 3 stars out of 5 -- "This period tickler is all about the performances -- McDormand is as perpendicular as Adams is delightfully flighty."Total Film20.82665
