Nanny McPhee

This week we're joined by director Issy Paul to discuss the 2005 family comedy fantasy Nanny McPhee. Written by Emma Thompson, Nanny McPhee is based on the Nurse Matilda books and follows Mr Brown (Colin Firth) as he struggles to find a nanny with the stamina to handle all seven of his naughty children. Shrouded in magic and mystery, Nanny McPhee (Emma Thompson) arrives to teach the children five lessons, and perhaps the adults a thing or two along the way.
