I don't think that Eleanor does say 'coronet'; she merely says 'cornet' with - to my British ear - a very American rhotic 'r'. Not a goof therefore. See more »
I'm doing a horrible job.
What are you talking about, you're doing a great job.
No. I don't want you to know about the stuff.
My stuff, the sordid details of my breakups, the stuff that happens in my personal life. We don't know each other that well, and you're to young to understand.
Don't be too sure about that, I have a great deal of understanding.
Well beyond my years.

A protagonist/antagonist tale of a precocious young man whose intelligence and wealth makes it easy to manipulate all about him for his own convenience (albeit mostly positive); butts heads with his new nanny who, of course, is polar opposite and predictably they both compromise (well one more than the other) to make a predictable but enjoyable journey.
Casting and subsequent acting first rate. Dialogue appropriate to the roles was outstanding and naturalistically convincing.
Ending, however, was not convincing or challenging. Nanny was in a situation where the resources would have opened many windows of opportunity, so her decision did not jibe with her situational intelligence. A more creative ending would have been a subway (or equivalent) playing duet possibly as a foothold to greater things. Additionally, the young man could have learned to use his skills to help his classmates and even the teacher, and later, others as well. The nanny also had the resources to be selfless and be a positive changer.
