Miss Mary

Directed by María Luisa Bemberg
Argentina, 1986


Miss Mary is a young British nanny who arrives in 1938 Buenos Aires to take care of the children of a wealthy landowner. Pre-Peronist Argentina is seen through her eyes as she adjusts to the privilege around her, sees the fascist movement evolving, and leaves before the election in ’45.
