Rating:

Documentary portrait of two octogenarian nannies. Director Jyl Johnstone was raised by chilly, Teutonic Martha; coproducer Barbara Ettinger lucked out with huggable African-American Ethel. Fascinating look into a world of privilege and servility; the wealthy Johnstones and Ettingers were

only too happy to wash their hands of the nasty business of child-rearing.

Coming Soon

Because it's never too early to plan Thursday night... two months from now.
