By Baz Bamigboye for the Daily Mail. Emma Thompson has revealed that she will direct the new Nanny McPhee musical. Thompson has written the show's book, basing it on the film which she adapted from Christianna Brand's Nurse Matilda stories originally published in the Sixties. The actress also played the title role of the snaggle-toothed, wart-speckled nursery nurse in possession of powers that rid recalcitrant children and their parents of their worst habits. She told me that the 'wonderful composer' Gary Clark is writing the score for the musical, while she is doing the lyrics. Clark's a catch. The Scottish songwriter and producer, now back in Dundee after several years residing and working in America, was the frontman for three groups including Danny Wilson: who found fame with Mary's Prayer in the Eighties.
The ensemble cast of children and the interplay of magic with good parenting skills create a delightful film of simple lessons and endearing images. Cedric Brown Colin Firth has withdrawn from his children because of the pain of the loss of his wife. Where he once played games and read to the children when his wife was alive, he has now taken to talking to her empty chair and hiring nannies to replace her. In a misguided attempt to help, Lady Adelaide issues an ultimatum that Cedric must marry by the end of the month or lose the substantial monthly allowance she has been providing to support the family. Striving to get his attention and acting out their own grief, the children are good-hearted but ruthless as they torment their nannies. Attempting to use human ingenuity to solve their problems, they soon become a danger both to themselves and others. It is then that they realize they need a supernatural intervention to get things back in line.
Nanny McPhee Returns is a more graceful and likable movie that delivers old-fashioned family entertainment with some real heart and moral substance, as well as a lot of typically British low humor. Unbeknownst to Isabel, Phil needs the money to settle a gambling debt and escape the menace of a couple of overripe hit women Sinead Matthews and Katy Brand who want to remove his kidneys on behalf of their employer, Mrs. Perhaps Mr. Big and the male hit men are all at war? Uncle Phil explicitly references the condition that excused him from serving.
