AN EDUCATION (2009) Starring Peter Sarsgaard, Carey Mulligan, Alfred Molina; Rated PG-13; 100 minutes
In the early 1960s, 16-year-old Jenny Mellor lives with her parents in a London suburb. She is smart, pretty, and working toward her goal of being accepted into Oxford. Her life will take a big turn when she meets David, a man twice her age. Now she must decide if she will pursue an education at Oxford, or if she will choose to learn all that a charismatic, older man can teach her.
"This is a performance, and a film, to cherish for this year and always." -- The Los Angeles Times
"Through stellar performances, clever writing and exquisite cinematography, the story is fresh and thoroughly captivating." -- USA Today
"Topped by a fine cast, a first-rate script by Nick Hornby and tight direction by Lone Scherfig, the film is a smart, moving but not inaccessible entry in the coming-of-age canon. -- The Hollywood Reporter
