Movie Info

Flailing thirty-four-year-old Bridget (Kelly O'Sullivan) finally catches a break when she meets a nice guy and lands a much-needed job nannying six-year-old Frances (played by a scene-stealing Ramona Edith-Williams). But an unwanted pregnancy introduces an unexpected complication. To make matters worse, she clashes with the obstinate Frances and struggles to navigate a growing tension between Frances's moms. Amidst her tempestuous personal relationships, a reluctant friendship with Frances emerges, and Bridget contends with the inevitable joys and shit-shows of becoming a part of someone else's family.

  • You could also describe it as the missing link between Bridesmaids and Roma.

    July 27, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • Funny, light and perforated with wicked one-liners, it takes the initial premise from Judd Apatow's Knocked Up and drives it into entirely different and eminently more satisfying territory.

  • O'Sullivan treats nothing glibly, yet everything can end up funny. Her way with a verbal faux pas is peerless.

    July 24, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • This is a film with a hopeful message about people, and their ability and willingness to learn - and to get along.

    July 24, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • An unflinching portrayal of a lost woman in her mid-30s.

    July 21, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Its gross-out/empowerment duality acts as a metaphor for a whole host of less visible social and emotional taboos.
