Despite having just lost her waitressing job, her boyfriend, and her home, would-be musician Eleanor (Leighton Meester) is still a bit hesitant when she takes a position as au pair for well-to-do Manhattan single mother Barbara (Debra Messing) and her 12-year-old, cello prodigy son, Reggie (Julian Shatkin). The bond that forms between Eleanor and her withdrawn charge, however, changes both of their lives in this emotional indie drama. Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong also stars. 104 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
