Starring as the “premiere” kitchen countertop in “The Nanny Diaries,” CaesarStone quartz surfaces offer the ultimate combination of form and function, allowing for a more diverse, durable and practical surfacing material than either granite or marble. Comprised of up to 93 percent natural quartz, one of nature’s strongest minerals, CaesarStone provides homeowners with a stain-, scratch-, heat-, mold- and mildew-resistant surface. CaesarStone has also earned the respected Good Housekeeping Seal, which guarantees a refund or replacement on any product found to be defective within two years from the date of purchase.

“The Nanny Diaries” tells the story of the emotional and often humorous journey of Annie Braddock (Johansson), a young woman from a working-class neighborhood in New Jersey, struggling to understand her place in the world. Fresh out of college, she gets tremendous pressure from her nurse mother to find a respectable position in the business world although Annie would prefer to trade in her Blackberry for an anthropologist's field diary. Through a serendipitous meeting, Annie ends up in the elite and ritualistic culture of Manhattan's Upper East Side -- as remote from Annie's suburban New Jersey upbringing as life in an Amazon tribal village. Choosing to duck out of real life, Annie accepts the position as a nanny for a wealthy family, referred to as simply "the X's." She quickly learns that life is not very rosy on the other side of the tax bracket, as she must cater to the every whim of Mrs. X (Linney) and her precocious son Grayer, while attempting to avoid the formidable Mr. X (Paul Giamatti). Life becomes even more complicated when Annie falls for a gorgeous neighbor of the X’s (Chris Evans) who she nicknames Harvard Hottie, and is forced to explore what she wants to do with her life.
