Story


Molly Gunn (Brittany Murphy) is the freewheeling daughter of a late rock legend, and the toast of the Manhattan social scene. But when her inheritance is stolen, Molly is forced to do something she's never done before - get a job.

Molly becomes a nanny to precocious Ray Schleine (Dakota Fanning), an "eight-year-old going on forty". Emotionally distant from her fast-paced A&R executive mother, Roma (Heather Locklear), Ray has grown up with a revolving door of nannies and too little stability. Molly and Ray both feel painfully alone in the world, but as they try to make their new arrangement work, each discovers in the other a true friend.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..mercilessly mundane..”
by Nev Pierce [BBC Films]
“..a formula film in which the formula has been adulterated with unrelieved sadness..”
by Ty Burr [Boston Globe]
“..The ability of "Uptown Girls" to charm its audience is completely dependent on the chemistry between Murphy and Fanning..”
by Francesca Dinglasan [Boxoffice Magazine]
