Sylvia: Sounds like a great setup. I can't believe how fast it all happened.
Eleanor: That's what kinda scares me about the whole thing. I talked to the mother for about 10 minutes before she hires me to take care of their 12 year old son. Next thing I know I'm living there.
Sylvia: You totally lucked out. I mean, what's the big deal?
Eleanor: They're like gazillionaires. The house is the size of Grand Central. And what do I know about taking care of a 12 year old boy?
Sylvia: Free room and board, plus you get paid, what more could you...

Love the movie but Euler is mispronounced.
3 February 2016 | by carlofiorletta-1See all my reviews

I stumbled on this movie, possibly because I have been looking at road trips and buddy movies. This is an unusual and charming movie. A low budget movie shot in the boroughs of New York. I grew up in Queens. I watch a lot of movies and cannot think of any largely similar one involving a precocious rich male prodigy and young adult female with great musical talent but whose financial resources had detoured her dreams. There is a classroom scene which is beautiful and describe a lot about the young boy and a teacher. Unless intentional for some reason the teacher mispronounced Euler and all even smart students learned that way https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=07HCb0eR9iY Congratulations especially to Frank Whaley whose acting work I knew. Julian Shatkin reminded me so much of my early days at Stuyvesant High School. Leighton Meester impressed me much as I did not know her much from her Television work, but she has some future in movies. Great casting by Allison Estrin for bit roles too. Very strong and sensitive performances.
