Streaming Film - The Perfect Nanny

Film Description:

Myriam (Leila Bekhti) and Paul (Antoine Reinartz), are your typical pair of Parisian bobos (bourgeois and bohemian) and parents of two young children, toddler Adam, and 5-year-old Mila, who are taking up all of Myriam’s time. When Myriam decides to go back to work despite her husband’s initial reluctancy, the copule starts looking for a nanny. After a very selective process, they finally find the perfect candidate, Louise, a poised 40-year old woman who is an instant hit with both kids and parents. But appearances can be deceiving, even dangerous.

Adapted from the eponymous novel by Leïla Slimani, winner of the Goncourt prize, and based on a true story that took place in Manhattan in 2012, the film offers a true pedestal to Karin Viard who seizes with formidable mastery this role of a disturbed nanny whose mask of perfection gradually cracks. [2019, France, 110 min, Not Rated]]
