I love “Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day” for way more than Amy Adams and Lee Pace.

The whole movie is set against the backdrop of the imminent start of World War II and there’s this amazing moment at this cocktail party where the younger partygoers cheer a squadron of bombers flying overhead and Guinevere turns to another man her age (middle aged) and says:

“They don’t remember the last one.”

and Joe says, “No. No they don’t.”

It’s so simple, such a tiny moment, and yet it is so very emotional because you KNOW what is coming and you know that both Joe and Guinevere remember the first World War and how horrible it was.

Add to the fact that the reason Guinevere keeps urging Delysia to blow of her wealthy and powerful lovers she’s using and marry the man she really loves who wants to go away to New York and marry her is because Guinevere was in love with a man who died in World War I and does not want to see this young lady who has love at her doorstep lose that.

It breaks your heart when she reveals her story about love she’s been keeping quiet on to Delysia and says, 

“Once I too had ambitions. Not your grand ones, simple ambitions. Marriage, children and a house of our own. He died, in the mud in France. A good, solid man. You would call him dull, no doubt, but he smiled whenever he saw me and we could’ve built a life on that. Your heart knows the truth, Delysia. Trust it.”

It’s just such a moving story to go with the adorable comedy of the whole situation.

I REALLY love this movie. It’s so utterly sweet.
