Releasing on March 7, 2008 with the budget of $60 million (Rs.240 crores)
Can you get a life and discover love, all in one day? Two women are about to find out.
The cast also includes Golden Globe Award nominee Lee Pace (of the hit series Pushing Daisies), Ciarán Hinds (There Will Be Blood), Shirley Henderson (the Harry Potter films), Mark Strong (Stardust), and screen newcomer Tom Payne.
Within minutes, Miss Pettigrew finds herself swept into a heady high-society milieu - and, within hours, living it up. Taking the "social secretary" designation to heart, she tries to help her new friend Delysia navigate a love life and career, both of which are complicated by the three men in Delysia's orbit; devoted pianist Michael (Mr. Pace), intimidating nightclub owner Nick (Mr. Strong), and impressionable junior impresario Phil (Mr. Payne). Miss Pettigrew herself is blushingly drawn to the gallant Joe (Mr. Hinds), a successful designer who is tenuously engaged to haughty fashion maven Edythe (Ms. Henderson) - the one person who senses that the new "social secretary" may be out of her element, and schemes to undermine her.
Over the next 24 hours, Guinevere and Delysia will empower each other to discover their romantic destinies.
