    In Uptown Girls, Brittany Murphy stars as Molly Gunn, the free-spirited daughter of a late, great rock star who has never managed to find her way to settle down and manage her life and money. She is a party girl who is constantly getting her heart broken and now she has had all her money stolen. Destitute Molly takes a job as a nanny to an uptight young girl (Dakota Fanning) with an unloving businesswoman for a mother (Heather Locklear).
    Her precocious charge, Ray, is "an eight year old going on forty" who doesn`t take well to her new mad, messy nanny and does everything that she can to put Molly in her place. But at heart Ray is a lonely little girl desperate for someone to love her and come and watch her ballet classes! As the two very different girls try to make their arrangement work, they soon discover a true friend in the other and manage to combine the responsibilities of adulthood with the freedom of being a child.
