MY WONDERFUL WANDA is a delightful satire of the haves and the have-nots set against the backdrop of a gorgeous lakeside villa in Switzerland. At the story's center is Wanda, a Polish caretaker who has left her own small children in Poland to look after Josef, the stroke-ridden patriarch of the wealthy Wegmeister-Gloor dynasty.
"A satire that gets to the heart of family dynamics, privilege, motherhood, class and lack of it. In so many ways, 'Wanda' is pretty wonderful." -Lois Alter Mark, Alliance of Women Film Journalists
