An idealistic 19th century baroness has found her next maid — a feral girl who can barely speak, let alone keep house. Now it’s just a matter of socializing her … right? Funny, relevant and heartbreaking, this Pygmalion-inspired tale of friendship and revenge cuts to the core of what it means to be “civilized” — and to be human. MATURE CONTENT
