An Education

Hello! How were your Thanksgivings? I had a wonderful time just being with my family and eating my weight in food.

Over the weekend I saw An Education, the movie about a young girl (Carey Mulligan) seduced by an older man (Peter Sarsgaard). The movie is exciting and adventurous as Jenny has expensive dinners, goes to concerts, and takes a trip to Paris with David. At the same time it makes you feel uncomfortable as she questions her morals and priorities. Despite the tension it is an intriguing story. I love the setting—London in the 60s. I am hoping to find the original memoir by Lynn Barber.

  1. I am so intrigued by this film. Given the subject matter it will take an excellent director and outstanding actors to execute this film well.
