Storyline

Wealthy widower Richard Keaton engages young widow Elizabeth 'Liz' Guinness as the 4th consecutive nanny for his pre-teen, equally science-devoted son Andrew, with instructions to disturb neither. She learns of mother Alycia's fatal fall, an official suicide but was probably murder. Dad keeps Andy at a distance, so he draws towards Liz. Real danger starts when Richard's brother, novelist Blain, arrives with his friend Jillian, to sell the ancestral estate against Richard's will. Written by KGF Vissers

Predictable, bland but watchable.
28 June 2005 | by (Kaiserslautern, Germany) – See all my reviews

The movie follows your standard dime-a-dozen romance plot pitting an warm-hearted sensitive young nanny against her stone-faced distant employer, with a wife who died mysteriously years ago. Such a plot would be forgivable if the leads had chemistry, but Elizabeth (Patsy Kensit) and Richard (Simon MacCorkindale) fail to bring the romance to the table. Many of their scenes together seem awkward and forced, and the eventual first kiss between them seemed so out-of-the-blue.

Aside from that, it very much feels like a cloyingly sweet made-for-TV movie that's watchable. That is, if there's nothing else on. I wouldn't recommend it unless you're a fan of Alicia Scott or enjoy sappy romances.
