Karin Viard (Potiche) stars in the tense 2019 French drama The Perfect Nanny, which is adapted from Leila Slimani’s 2016 bestselling novel Chanson Douce.

Myriam (Leïla Bekhti) and Paul (Antoine Reinartz), are your typical pair of young bourgeois Parisian parents of two young children, toddler Adam, and 5-year-old Mila, who are taking up all of Myriam’s time. When Myriam decides to go back to work despite her husband’s initial reluctance, the couple starts looking for a nanny. After a very selective process, they finally find the perfect nanny candidate, Louise (Viard), a poised 40-year old woman who is an instant hit with both kids and parents. The couple soon learns, however, that appearances can be deceiving.

Based on a true story that took place in Manhattan in 2012, The Perfect Nanny is co-written and directed by Lucie Borleteau.
