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 very wealthy Wegmeister-Gloor dynasty. Wanda is adept at navigating the tricky family dynamics between the two grown (if still childish) offspring and the elegant (if controlling) matriarch Elsa, along with the sporadic intervention of animals - stuffed or alive. An unexpected turn of events turns everything upside down in this very human comedy
