With a stockpile of one-liners behind her and a delightful sense of retro fashion, Fran Drescher (of the TV series 'The Nanny') provides both the who, what, when, and also the dressing for this funny and intelligent comedy about a ruler in a land of tyrants and kings - and a hairdresser from Queens, New York.

Hairdresser Joy Miller (Drescher) is eager to make it far in the world, and she gets her chance when she is summoned to the modern er-was once country of Slovetzia to work as a governess to the three children of dictator Boris Pochenko (Timothy Dalton), a grumpy widower.
Joy thinks she has been hired as a beautician. Boris thinks she was hired as a skilled chemistry teacher . Chemistry or not, a different kind of chemistry begins to exert its magical influence. Joy's spirited openness blows the cobwebs off the tradition-shrouded Slovetzia. And her resourcefulness gives Pockenko's heart a boost ... or does it?
The best way to find out is to make an appointment with "The Beautician and the Beast.
