Maggie Gyllenhaal interview: mothering and Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang

Maggie Gyllenhaal is one of those women who you just wish you were mates
with. The ever-cool actress and mother of one is the heroine of the
latest Nanny McPhee offering: Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang.

Set in Oxfordshire during war time, Gyllenhaal plays Mrs Green, a harassed
mother of three who's desperately trying to run a farm, hold down a job
and bring up her own kids as well as looking after her brother's two
snotty children from the big city - all while her husband (Ewan McGregor)
is away at war.

We caught up with her to find out how the city mom from NYC relates to
her country mum from Oxfordshire character...

Our verdict:

Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang features an all star cast including Maggie Gyllenhaal, Emma Thompson, Ralph Fiennes, Ewan McGregor, Rhys
Ifans and Brit favorites Maggie Smith, Bill Bailey and Katy Brand.

Perfect for the family, it's a laugh-out-loud riot with poignant tear-jerking
moments thrown in for good measure. If you liked the first Nanny McPhee
then you're going to love this one. If you haven't seen the first one,
this second outing will prove a fantastic introduction to the
Nanny who's there when you need her - not when you want her.

Out in cinemas nationwide from 26th March 2010
