Carey Mulligan announces herself as a major name to watch.

An Education deserves high marks. You could argue that the central relationship ought to seem sleazier, but Danish director Lone Scherfig perfectly captures the era's look and mood, Hornby's Oscar-nominated script is deft and the performances are spot on

Nick Hornby's screenplay is funny and sweet and 1000 percent English in that catnip-to-American-audiences way he's so good at already.

Mulligan possesses Audrey Hepburn-like radiance, but the 22-year-old actress looks so young, it's hard to perceive David as anything but creepy.

You could do a lot worse than spend 100 minutes with Ms. Mulligan. Movie fans, I give you a woman worth educating yourself on.

Humility, that most educational of human qualities, is earned and wisdom is gained, making An Education not only an entertaining picture, but an enlightening one as well.

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

A star turn by Carey Mulligan playing a 16-year-old who gets charmed (and, uh, educated) by a suspiciously alluring older man, the excellent Peter Sarsgaard.

An unusually nuanced and mature depiction of one of those hoary movie fantasies: the older man who gets the much, much younger woman.

Odds have it, as of this writing, that the Best Actress Oscar race will probably come down to Meryl Streep versus Sandra Bullock, but neither of them carries their respective movie quite as ably as Mulligan does here.

[Mulligan] brightens what could be considered a common lesson in youth vs. maturity, and makes it one worth sharing.

Carey Mulligan deserves serious Oscar consideration for her work in An Education.

It was hard to watch Jenny fall so easily to chaotic neutral David, but it was deliriously romantic as well. He wears down our resistance and we fall for him too.

As a fan of the great kitchen-sink dramas and British coming-of-age films of the 1960s, I loved this throwback to that glorious time in British filmmaking.

Groucho Reviews

The film's greatest strength may well be how Sarsgaard's David, in concert with Hornby and Scherfig, seduces the audience along with Jenny, promising the world and leaving temptingly unlocked a Pandora's Box of social ambiguity.

You may think you know where the film is going, but its ecstasy and heartbreak will stick with you afterward. It's one of the year's best.
