Carrey Mulligan gives an astounding, Oscar-caliber performance in this touching, poignant, and precise coming-of-age tale of a young British girl who falls for an older Jewish guy, set against London in the pre-swinging era.

...a complex and morally ambiguous story which rewards the audience's attention without resorting to pushing their buttons.

Everything about Scherfig's coming-of-age story about a girl in the London suburb of Twickenham in 1961 is spot-on.

The combination of a literate script, an adroit cast and an economical style is simple addition that achieves an alchemical feat: the best film of the year.

Shared Darkness

Mulligan locates both the braininess and restless hormonal energy of an adolescent who's blooming before most of her peers. Bearing witness to her education, in all its naiveté, brashness, passion and pain, is illuminating.

An Education offers plenty to enjoy and admire. It's full of first-rate performances.

This film is carried on the slender shoulders of Mulligan, a 22-year-old actress who captures both the child and the woman, creating an indelible performance we can't easily forget.

A love story that simultaneously left me speechless and with a mouth full of words. Mulligan's performance is the best I have seen from an actress in 2009.

Philip French
Observer [UK]

Danish director Lone Scherfig seems at home in Britain and the details of clothes, haircuts and so on are dead right.

A beguiling little film that, with deceptive restraint and forthrightness, opens up worlds of roiling, contradictory emotions.

Many have come close, but An Education is the first film this year to grab me by the lapel and whisk me along with its characters...

The movie belongs to Mulligan, whose Jenny looks like Audrey Hepburn when she puts her hair up and dons a black dress, and like every teenage girl who's had her heart broken when she cries.

Simultaneously an education and a thrill.

Duane Dudek
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Scherfig and Hornby craft a portrait of an era whose innocence is overstated without resorting to sepia tinged nostalgia. The result is a snapshot of how we become who we become, as a vibrant and affectionate act of memory.

An Education argues that life -- and the human heart -- are far too complicated merely to be studied. They need to be experienced.

A resonant coming-of-age story, at once tough and delicate, that signifies how much times have changed in the proceeding fifty years, and, in other ways, how much they have stayed the same.

'An Education' is a finely crafted film that touches every emotion. Watch it to see how a story so fun and playful can also be so tender and heartbreakingly sad.
