Carey Mulligan pulls a great Hepburn-esque performance as a pretentious yet naive girl. Cinematography is real good, stylistically it reminded me of The Brothers Bloom, with all those nice costumes and locations. The film is funny and charming, but...

Just a fantastic movie. I can completely relate to Jenny, Carey Mulligan's character in the desire to live a worthwhile life. The outcome is upsetting because Peter Sarsgaard's character is brilliant, charming, sexy, and interesting, but doesn't...

Coming of age period pieces don't normally excite me, but after hearing how wonderful this was I decided to check it out for myself. The only problem I had with this flick was the ending. It got tied up a little too neatly. Everything else about...

"AN EDUCATION" is an excellent and rewarding film that is off the beaten track. With little sex, no violence, and very real people, it probably has little mass commercial appeal, but it's extremely enjoyable. The basic plot involves a high-school...
