The story of Eleanor (Leighton Meester) who is floundering. She used to play cello and was an award winning cellist. But she is estranged from her rarely there parents, and without friends. She loses he job as a waitress due to her flaky musician boyfriend who is not good to her. She talks he way into a nanny job taking care of a 12 year old prodigy Reggie (Julian Shatkin) who is extremely talented and intelligent and way smarter than his age would indicate. His parents are always gone, and Elenor and Reggie hit it off. In many ways he has learned to deal with his lonely life and missing parents, and the two of them work through each others situation and they are able to help each other to survive.

This was in many way a really decent film. I really liked Julian, and his portrayal was spot on. He plays a really good Richie Rich without the smart mouth. He’s just the right amount of clever and mischievous without being over the top. He was awesome. Additionally, Leighton was excellent in her role as well and played it quite well. Debra Messing is Reggie’s mother, and she’s not in the movie much, but she also helps deliver some of the desperation of wanting to be a Mother, but just being too damn busy with her other interests to pull it off. This should be exactly like several other very similar movies, but surprisingly it came off as fresh and different. I really enjoyed it, and I can recommend this film. It’s off the radar for most folks, but very much worth looking for. This is a good solid movie without any major flaws.
