Even if you're the top of your class all work and no play makes jack or jill a dull...you know the rest. An Education looks at this very subject. One of my favorite actresses Carey Mulligan breaks out here in this flick about love, heartbreak, fun and academia. Jenny is an English girl who is the top of her schools class and is working to read English at Oxford University. She one day meets a charming youg man named David Goldman who seduces her with lavish expenses and trips. Very soon he ends up falling in love her as does she. All this goes on while she is facing mounting pressure from her parents particularly her father. As I had mentioned this coming of age film becomes one about love,heartbreak, fun, and academia.This was Pretty Good I must say. it's a very relatable film in terms of wanting to have a fun or do something exciting even though you've spent most of your life trying to be the best student you can be. hell even girls falling for older men is relatable as well. carey mulligan once again shows why she's one of my favorite actresses she plays the innocent but smart girl to a tee here. Jenny is grade A student and doesn't really know the other joys of life outside of her education. peter sarsgaard's English accent is pretty bad here in my opinion. however as far as the character itself he did a great job playing out this smooth talking man who seduces jenny in many ways. Alfred Molina was really solid here. He plays a father that ive heard about many times in my life. the one who is always pushing and pressuring their kid to be the most high class intelligent student out there and not taking the time to realize what her daughter really needs as a balance to that life he has bestowed apon hereReally exquisite writing here. good cinematography liked the way everything was shot here. nice music choices here. the directing is superb, it's a truly reflective drama that is done so well. the last 20 minutes took me by surprise.An Education turns out to be a great flick for at the time breakout star Carey Mulligan. And shit look at where she is now.

JeanFrancois V (fr) wrote: I watched the first half-hour of this film and then finished it on x4 fast forward just to make sure it was going where I thought it was. It is said to be "based on an idea by Gabriel Ronap", which idea probably consisted in doing a remake of "The Leech Woman" that recycled the legends that grew around the life of Countess Nadasdy (1560-1614), better know as Elisabeth Bathory, a Hungarian aristocrat rumoured to have killed and tortured several hundred people (though reliable historical works on her life seem to be few and far between.) The film contains more nudity than gore and suffers mostly from an uninspired script, mediocre (and apparently sometimes dubbed) actors, non-existent cinematography and corny make-up. What I particularly liked about it was the opportunity to see what Lesley Anne-Down actually looked like at 17 without the heavy make-up she always wore later on. She was quite pretty, but the film doesn't give her much of a role (she gets abducted, and her idea of an escape is throwing a plate of rice at her gaoler's face and then banging on the locked door.) Compared to the "Leech Woman", it mostly suffers from the lack a MST3K commentary, which is why I couldn't finish it.
