Uptown girls (Molly Gunn)
Threat advisory: Under evaluation
They're about to teach each other how to act their age.
Molly Gunn (Brittany Murphy) is the toast of the New York social scene. The freewheeling daughter of a late rock legend, Molly is an "it girl" on top of the A-list - designers want to dress her, the most eligible bachelors want to date her and her birthday bash is one of the hottest tickets in town. Her life is a never-ending party.
But when Molly's inheritance is stolen by her accountant, the party comes to an abrupt end. Molly is forced to do something she's never done before - get a job.
With the help of her best friend Ingrid (Marley Shelton) and A and R scout pal Huey (Donald Faison), Molly lands a position as nanny to the daughter of high-powered music executive Roma Schleine (Heather Locklear). Molly's new charge is Ray Schleine (Dakota Fanning), a precocious, uptight 8-year-old "going on 40" who's obsessed with germs and lives her life as perfectly as possible. Emotionally distant from her mother, Ray has grown up with a revolving door of nannies and too little stability, so she tries to control everything she can.
Molly has never needed to be a responsible adult. Ray has taken the weight of the world on her young shoulders.
