'What does education mean at least, if you are only supposed to mark pony essays, or ended up thinking the endless possibilities of what would you have been after a hell of a hard and bored time. This question clicks us at least twice a day, even though the question always appeared with a dumb silly grin. The movie 'An Education' is a great piece of dramatic production, which stipulates and manipulates this intellectual twist we see every day
Ritz of art touched by many hearts, France is everyone's dream, who really love good smoke and see themselves in vintage, pale white themed photos. Though this luxury part of the Movie sort of predictable and common to the movies with alike theme, it anyhow successfully carries us through nuanced but not apprehending romance.
The conclusion of the movie, it is always unanswered and decided by the fate. It is a pleasing fact, in the movie itself has been able to identify the nature of the subject what they are dealing.
Caret Mulligan and the rest of the cast are doing a great depiction. Characters were well balanced and appropriately used. In fact who won't fall for a bright and naughty true English beauty, Jenny Mellor!!!
An Education, is an unfounded battle of 'Oxford versus University of Life'

Immensely realistic with stunning performances, An Education is a spectacular and thought- provoking coming of age drama that's worth having a look at

A different look at the types of education facing a teenage schoolgirl. Well directed and acted, this classy coming-of-age drama also has a good mix of humour as well. A lesson well learned. AAN 1001

It has a pretty typical and familiar plot, the characters are very unlikable and it is not particularly well directed, but an Education benefits from emotional approach, complex issues raised and a fantastic performance from Carey Mulligan who absolutely shines as the protagonist. It is a film that is not a bit fresh, but that manages to make that familiar story relevant again thanks to fine characterization, superb acting all around and engaging, applicable conflict.

An Education has much more of a twist than what the trailer show, and boldly uses that to its advantage.

Carey Mulligan has shown her potential as what a good actress she can be. Probably it goes back as early as her piece in one of the episode of Doctor Who season 3. That is when I started to notice her. An Education deserves high marks.

In 1961 Jenny (Carey Mulligan) a 16 year old girl planning her life of going to Oxford University next year has no idea her dreams are about to turn up side down when she meet a quite older gentleman named David (Peter Sarsgaard) who's in his late 30s. They quickly fall in love as they share their love for music and as and audience you are uneasy of their new found romance because of they distant in age difference and levels of mental growth. Jenny is sucked into the charming and rich life style of David and his friends as is the audience then we are all fooled. In An Education directed by Nick Hornby there are subtle hints that David and his friends are up to no good and can seem shady at times but is balanced out with the fun playfulness David affectionately shows Jenny allowing us to disregard his wrong doing. After a while both Jenny's and David's ages are soon forgotten at the peak of their relationship as is Jenny's future and Oxford. Once Jenny and her family realize she will be financially stable and happy with David around Jenny is blinded by love and now sees no use for a woman to go to school. Jenny is now left in a though, emotional state after her heart is broken. Overall, loved the film yet I was unsatisfied with the ending even though Jenny seemed happy now living and acting as id she were the appropriate age.

Based in the 1960s, Lone Scherfig's film, An Education is focused around a 16 year old schoolgirl named Jenny played by Carey Mulligan. Jenny meets an older man named David who is around his mid-30s, played by Peter Sarsgaard. Jenny and David began to spend a lot of time together and they began to fall in love. But then the heartbreak came when Jenny found out some facts about the "real" David. This film keeps you on the edge of your seat with you never knowing how it will end. There is a huge difference between society during the 1960's and and society now, but this great film shows what it is like to be a teenager during this time and taking risks.

The movie, "An Education" directed by Lone Scherfig is a flim about a young girl name Jenny (Carey Mulligan) who is smart, pretty and dreams of attending Oxford University and a much older man named David (Peter Sarsgaard) who charms her into the adult life. I really enjoyed this movie and recommend it to anyone old enough to comprehend its message. The climax of the movie is very unexpected and will leave you wanting to know what is going to happen next. The film also teaches a good lesson on decision making. By keeping the viewer intrigued, having an important theme, and ending in a satisfactory way, this movie has earned a very good reputation and a favorable review.

An Education is a movie about a 16 year old girl, Jenny (Carey Mulligan), who is working really hard trying to balance cello practices and keeping her grades as high as possible so she can get into her dream college, Oxford. One day Jenny is walking home from cello practice and is stopped by a man in his 30s, David (Peter Sarsgaard), who offers to get her out of the rain and drive her home. Director, Lone Scherfig, does a great job of incorporating all of the little things we know about Jenny and creating it into an extravagant love story where David gives her everything she has ever wanted. As the film progresses Jenny starts to steer in the wrong direction; she drops out of high school and is spending all of her time with David. I enjoyed watching how Jenny had her whole life together and planned out completely, to watching it go downhill at a very fast pace, and then finally watch her take charge of her life, get back into high school, and most importantly finish what she started. I gave this film a 4 out of 5 stars because I really liked seeing Jenny get her life back together at the end, but was a bit shocked that she was only 16 years old and was dating a 30-ish year old man.

Directed by Lone Scherfig, An education stars Carey Mulligan playing a 16-year-old who gets charmed by a suspiciously fascinating older man, Peter Sarsgaard. This movie was a very good, interesting movie. It kept the audience intrigued on what was going to happen next. Jenny could not wait to be an adult. She dated David, who was in his thirty's, when she was 16 years old. I thought that this kept the audience interested because we wanted to keep finding out more about David and who he truly is. Although David could be sweet sometimes, he was still hiding the truth from Jenny. It was only a matter of time before Jenny found out about David's real life.

in 1961 an educated 16-year old schoolgirl named Jenny (Carry Mulligan) learns lessons in both life and love. She lived her days aiming to mainly please her dad who had nothing but high expectations for her while Jenny only dreamed of reading books and novels in college. One rainy day after cello practice she runs into a man who looks to be in his mid to late 30s named David (Peter Sarsaard) who introduces her to a world she only dreamed of. Full of classical concerts and delicious food! Not only was Jenny living her dream but her father approved of him as well. This brilliant and charming man was willing to even get Jenny into her dream college of Oxford. This film will have you at the edge of your seat wondering if Jenny has found the man of her dreams or if this is all just a disaster waiting to happen. I rated this a 4 out of 5 considering the age difference was rather disturbing and the ending left me with too many questions. Considering the time that this movie was portraying i went along with it. The actors also didnt correctly portray the image of the age they were aiming for either. Although it was flawed in those perspectives i overall loved it and i recommend it to anyone who would love a good romance movie.

In 1961, the protagonist, 16-year-old schoolgirl, Jenny (Carey Mulligan) is captivated with French art, movies, book, and music. Jenny sits in her Cello and school classes just waiting and daydreaming about a different lifestyle. Then on a rainy day after class she is standing in the rain after cello practice she is approached by an older man named David (Peter Sarsaad) he is a man who has money to his name, a nice car and is easily able to help Jenny live the life she daydreams about having. I gave this film 3 out of 5 stars, mainly because even though this film did have its fun and funny moment it was just overall quite disturbing for the main fact that it is about a 16 year old girl falling in love with a man in his late 30s or so who is married and has a young child at home. Though it may have been considered normal back then, the way that the actors portrayed their characters felt a bit wrong. Especially when they had scenes with a 16 year old girl smoking with adults and go to clubs drinking, it looked as though David could have been her father. This film overall, in my opinion, was disturbing anduncomfortable.
