When mother of two children Myriam decides to go back to work despite her husband’s initial reluctancy, the couple starts looking for a nanny. After a very selective process, they finally find the perfect candidate, Louise, a poised 40-year-old woman who is an instant hit with both kids and parents. But as Louise makes herself indispensable to the family, she starts revealing her true self and her behavior becomes more and more unsettling to those around her.

Under the watchful eye of director Lucie Borleteau (Fidelio: Alice’s Odyssey, Rendez-Vous 2015), this adaptation of Leïla Slimani’s best-selling novel becomes a vividly detailed, unsettling thriller that probes our tendencies to trust those we barely know.

France, 2019, 100 minutes, Not Rated, In French with English Subtitles, Directed by Lucie Borleteau

  • “A PRECISE and ANXIETY-PROVOKING psychological thriller"

  • “Drawn from a true-life crime in New York in 2012, ‘The Perfect Nanny’ taps into a very particular kind of middle-class angst.”

    —Richard Whittaker, AUSTIN CHRONICLE
  • “Disturbing...classically suspenseful...played with icy aplomb by veteran Viard (‘Delicatessen’).”

    —Jordan Mintzer, HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
  • “Perfect Nanny plays the card of dramatic suspense to the point where it comes close to the horror film”

  • “Louise (is) played by the estimable French character actor Karin Viard...there are some startling and shocking scenes.”

    —Peter Bradshaw, THE GUARDIAN
