For those of you who remember Blockbuster… “Not everything comes along just when we want it. There are times when decisions just have to be made, or you certainly will miss out.” -Miss Pettigrew By […]

Miss Pettigrew Lives For a Day

Read more

Welcome to Episode 7 of Season 2 of Adapted with Anna and Sam! In this episode, Anna and Sam dig into the Hollywoodization of Miss Pettigrew Lives For a Day, by Winifred Watson, which was made into a movie starring Frances McDormand and Amy Adams in 2008. Giggle along as they debate that Hollywood trope of love or money, the trouble with aspiring 1930s actresses, and if Lee Pace's looks should matter (spoiler alert: of course they do, he's gorgeous, he should always win).

You can find all the cast lists and other fun trivia on iMDB.

Purchase the book and/or movies at Amazon and/or Barnes and Noble, or your favorite indie bookstore, or borrow from your local library in person or via Overdrive.

Tea or Books? #60: married vs unmarried characters, and Miss Pettigrew Lives For a Day vs Patricia Brent, Spinster

Read more

This episode is all about married and unmarried people – in general, and two ‘spinsters’ in particular. Buckle up!


(Apologies if the podcast in your app overlaps the intro music with the intro chat… this one doesn’t, but I don’t know how it’ll appear elsewhere!)

In the first half, we look at books with married or unmarried characters. Yes, I’m aware that that is all books. We do narrow down a little! And in the second half we narrow down to two particular unmarried women – in Winifred Watson’s Miss Pettigrew Lives For a Day and Herbert Jenkins’ Patricia Brent, Spinster. Very many thanks to Karen for suggesting the topic. It is perhaps our most controversial one ever!

The episode with me on my brother’s podcast, C to Z of Movies, is now live! Listen to us discuss films beginning with S – either on Soundcloud or via your podcast app of choice. Other links – you can support the podcast on Patreon, or visit our iTunes page, or rate and review through various apps.

Like any podcast, there comes an episode where one of the hosts forgets to change their mic from the default webcam mic to their actual, professional recording device. For Carter, this is that episode, and he is sorry. But ever onward! We watched Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, starring Francis McDormand. She's just the best. We greatly appreciate everything she's done. We also appreciate everything you've done.

Thank you

In the late 1930s, times were changing, and for Miss Pettigrew (Frances McDormand), that includes losing her position as governess. With no money, no clothes but what's on her back, what's a moral, upstanding woman to do? Seize the opportunties that come her way, and end up living a day quite unlike any she's ever experienced before! Throw in an American actress (Amy Adams) and her three suitors Phil (Tom Payne), Nick (Mark Strong), and Michael (Lee Pace), a fashion shop owner on the prowl (Shirley Henderson), and her target, a lingerie designer (Ciaran Hinds), you have the makings of a story unlike any seen since the time period the movie is set in! Directed by Bharat Nalluri, based on a novel by Winifred Watson, Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day is a treat, although Buddy, Chad, and Jeff disagree on how delicious a treat it is. Plus, Buddy reveals the films he's going to be asking Chad and Jeff to watch from the world of Hong Kong cinema for the next two episodes!
