Nanny Movie 2022 Download Mp4: Aisha is an undocumented nanny working for a privileged couple in New York City. As she prepares for the arrival of the son she left behind in West Africa, a violent presence invades her reality and threatens her way of life.
The horror of the immigrant experience is often portrayed quite literally in American cinema — realistic, shaky camera movements; stark, muted colors; sad, tired people with their eyes wide, speaking only sparingly as they take all the abuse capitalism has to offer.

The directors who traffic in these stories often do so from a place of detachment, able to register the suffering of their subjects while ignoring the many layers of their humanity.
And then, once in a while, audiences get something that not only depicts the immigrant experience but also provides us with a lens for which to (at least partially) understand the emotional nuances of physically living in one place while one’s heart resides in another.
Leaving your homeland is a series of small deaths, compounding into a general sense of mourning the life you could have had if you stayed. Nikyatu Jusu’s debut feature, Nanny, is about coping with that mourning in the hopes that a new life will lead to healing.
The film tells the story of Aisha (Anna Diop), a Senegalese nanny for Rose (Rose Decker), the daughter of a wealthy white New York couple with a strained marriage. Amy (Michelle Monaghan) is the prototypical upper-crust working mom whose control issues and general anxiety make it difficult for Aisha to do her job.
When Rose refuses to eat the bland, hermetically sealed health food her mother leaves for her, Aisha begins feeding her jollof rice on the sly, knowing that Amy would never allow it.
Though her husband Adam (Morgan Spector) is around, it’s Amy who calls the shots, demanding every moment of Aisha’s time as well as emotional support. Adam lives up to her disdain, disappearing frequently and only showing interest in Rose when given the opportunity to flirt with Aisha. Worn out from her job and fed up with Adam, Amy can’t even seem to manage paying Aisha on time.
