This movie is about a Jewish girl, who has to for financial reasons go and work for a family that does not know that she is Jewish. She has very strong faith, but she keeps this to her self. She eventually falls in love with the master of the house, but you can see why, his wife is just a vapid woman and his children are nuts. This movie was very sensual, and I like that the governess was a strong woman. I also like how she deals with the family when they found out she is jewish. They treat her no better than a bug. This is one of my favorite movies. Not a movie for children.
