Brittany Murphy and Dakota Fanning in Uptown Girls from 2003.

Uptown Girls – parallels

Brittany Murphy and Dakota Fanning in the 2003 film Uptown Girls. Brittany plays the child-like daughter of a rock star who starts babysitting Dakota’s character who is a totally grown-up 8 year old. The babysitter needs to grow up and take responsibility for her life, while the child needs to learn to be a child.

Throughout the film there are parallels set up between the two characters.

I have a tendency to always connect songs with scenes. I can pretty much remember most of the songs that were in my head during most scenes.
