The telephone in the house makes the USA dead tone (blips) rather than the UK dead tone (a continuous tone). See more »
Okay, I see that you're... a writer from... Phoenix, Montana. You've come here to be inspired by the English countryside and to get away from the hustle and bustle of your life in the U.S. of A.
Um... not at all. No.

When an American nanny arrives in a British country home, she discovers she's paid to look after a doll.
I am so surprised to see the relatively low score and number of negative reviews, I was really impressed by this movie, it was original, intelligent and kept me wondering through to the end. I can see why some would dislike it, those perhaps that were expecting a Chucky style film. In fact this film is a cleverly conceived, well crafted thriller. I appreciate some bits are far fetched, such as the ex boyfriend's arrival, and of course the conclusion, but as for being watchable I couldn't take my eyes off it for a second for fear of missing something.
Well acted by all, this is a film I will definitely watch again. 9/10
