You're white, will you be my nanny? The Nanny Diaries (TWC/MGM)
"Nanny Fact: in every one of my interviews, references are never checked. I am white. I speak French. My parents are college educated. I have no visible piercings and have been to Lincoln Center in the last two months. I'm hired."
That's from the best-selling novel The Nanny Diaries , written by two former nannies, Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus. They smartly skewer New York's elite upperclass as they take you into the secret world of Manhattan nannies. The Nanny Diaries (opening August 24 throughout San Diego) now arrives on screen with Scarlett Johansson as an NYU graduate who falls into a nanny position and then takes us on what amount to an anthropological tour of how rich Manhattanites pass off parenting to nannies.
