With Minnie Driver, Tom Wilkinson, Florence Hoath, Jonathan Rhys Meyers. When the father of privileged Rosina da Silva violently dies, she decides to pass herself off as a gentile and finds employment with a family in faraway Scotland. Soon she and the family father, Charles, start a passionate secret affair/10(K). The Governess tells the story of Marion 'Crawfie' Crawford, the progressive young working-class woman who, as royal governess for seventeen years, lived on the most intimate terms with Princess Margaret and the future Queen Elizabeth II. A long time member of the Windsors' inner circle, Marion had a ringside seat to some of the most seismic events of the 20th century. The governess has haunted the British imagination since the eighteenth century, when in the indomitable person of the preceptress, she helped to define what it meant to be a rational woman. In the nineteenth century she evolved into a far more enigmatic figure, embodying both the hopes and fears of the moneyed classes and marking faultlines in the ideal of domestic femininity.

Independent young Kate Porter envisions a future far greater than the middle-class existence she's always lived, and her work as a governess is simply a means to an end. The glittering world of a society wife calls, and her new position as a private tutor for the children of Mr. Alonzo Colaco is a /5(14). The governess, with her overabundant concern for the children and her violent suspicions of them, may be regarded as either a heroine or a villain. On one hand, she seems to be an ambitious young woman who unwittingly places herself in a position in which she is forced to struggle heroically to protect her charges from supernatural forces.
