Lingerie on Film: Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day


If you're looking for a rom-com that both you and your significant other will be able to stomach, you'd do well to check out "Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day," starring the always brilliant Frances McDormand and the adorable Amy Adams. This lighthearted British farce was adapted from a 1939 novel, and it is a prime example of the screwball comedy genre, full of wacky shenanigans and improbable situations. Amy Adams does a phenomenal job of capturing the sensuality and frivolity that actresses like Carole Lombard and Marilyn Monroe perfected on the silver screen - she must have studied My Man Godfrey and Some Like it Hot prior to filming. It lacks the depth of many other films covering the Bright Young Things in pre-war London, but it is still thoroughly enjoyable, thanks to the excellent cast and sumptuous cinematography. Lille fans will love the lingerie fashion show in a gilded hotel ballroom and are sure to enjoy the debate about foundation undergarments...here's a great quote: "you, as nature intended."
