Molly Gunn (Brittany Murphy, Clueless) is a poor little rich girl forced to do the unimaginable, work for a living after her accountant absconds with her inheritance. Becoming the nanny for the precocious and wise beyond her years eight-year-old Ray Schleine (Dakota Fanning, Man on Fire) starts off bad and gets worse. But Molly, seeing herself in Ray, seeks to bond with her young charge not as her employee, but as her friend in the dramatic comedy Uptown Girls. Directed by Boaz Yakin (Remember the Titans) and written by Julia Dahl, Mo Ogrodnik and Lisa Davidowitz from a story by Allison Jacobs, Uptown Girls co-stars Heather Locklear (TV’s Melrose Place) as Roma, Ray’s distant mother, and Jesse Spencer (TV’s Chicago Fire) as Molly’s boyfriend Neal; along with Donald Faison (Clueless) and Austin Pendleton (A Beautiful Mind).
