I think Elosie is spoiled and a horrible role model for children. She is self centered and lies to get what she wants.

Is It Any Good?

Some parents might consider Eloise a bit fresh and self-centered, but here she's down-to-earth and hard-working compared to aspiring child actors she meets on her trip. With Nanny's constant and stable guidance, Eloise learns what it's really like to be an actress, and she's not sure she likes what she sees. The movie does a good job of illustrating the negatives of the movie business, and is probably a good way to initiate a conversation with the star-struck girls between 4 and 9 who will enjoy this most.

One of Eloise's most endearing traits is her great imagination and energy, and the video does a nice job of bringing that to life. The scenes of how Eloise kills time during the inevitable waiting, for auditions and for scenes to be shot, are amusing. And the dialogue is true to the book, with Nanny issuing edicts in triplicate and Eloise introducing herself as "Hi I'm Eloise I Am Six" as though it's her full name.
