My first instinct was to turn the DVD off after the first 20 minutes, but I didn't go with it. Cute premise, but this ended up being just another waste of my time. Yes, the scenery was beautiful, but the scenes were choppy, the storyline was too forced, and the movie just didn't flow. Uma Thurman was mostly bearable as the nanny...I actually couldn't stand her at times, and I'm an Uma fan! Vanessa Redgrave is still beautiful in her senior years, but her acting was only so-so. I couldn't stand her over-the-top open-mouth moments. Edward Fox was just not appealing in any way, and that made it hard for me to like his character. I wouldn't recommend this.
