Have this article read to you, listen to it like a podcast

Brittany Murphy and Dakota Fanning cemented a cinematic pairing for the modern age with Boaz Yakin’s 2003 dramedy, Uptown Girls, as part of our 21st Century Cult series.

Molly Gunn (Murphy), the freewheeling daughter of a deceased rock legend, is forced to get a job when her manager steals her money. As nanny for precocious Ray (Fanning), the oft ignored daughter of a music executive, she learns what it means to be an adult while teaching Ray how to be a child.

One of Brittany Murphy’s definitive roles, Uptown Girls complements its perfectly-cast leads with a charming and bittersweet sensibility.

Uptown Girls screens Thursday, November 16th.
