An Education - DVD Review


Starring Carey Mulligan, Peter Sarsgaard, Alfred Molina, Rosamund Pike, Dominic Cooper, Olivia Williams and Emma Thompson.

I enjoyed the central performance of Carey Mulligan. She has this Audrey Hepburn quality to her. She's a headstrong teenager in 1961 England who meets and falls for an older man (Peter Sarsgaard) who may or may not be good for her. I'm still a bit stunned this was nominated for Best Picture. The conclusion was inevitable. It's an example of a central performer pulling the rest of the story along I suppose.
