Author Nick Hornby (About a Boy) turns from novels to screenplays with this talent-driven, critically-acclaimed drama.
Newcomer Carey Mulligan (Bleak House), in a star-making performance, stars as Jenny, a young woman full of promise and intent to study at Oxford. But meeting an older man (Peter Sarsgaard, Elegy) leads Jenny to believe that she can learn things outside the classroom, casting doubt on her future plans.
Directed by Lone Scherfig (Italian for Beginners), this brilliant film also stars Alfred Molina (Spiderman 2), Rosamunde Pike, Dominic Cooper (Mamma Mia!), Olivia Williams, and Emma Thompson.
Just as Jenny is dazzled by her dashing playboy, so will you be by this enchanting film.

Fresh: You could do a lot worse than spend 100 minutes with Ms. Mulligan. Movie fans, I give you a woman worth educating yourself on.-Simon Miraudo, Quickflix, October 27, 2010
Fresh: 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.-Christy Lemire, Associated Press, December 15, 2009
Fresh: The centerpiece of An Education is the breakout performance of young Carey Mulligan. She is enchanting, and almost convincing as the teenage Jenny, though she can't completely obscure the (justified) suspicion that she's in her twenties and old enough f-Jonathan F.
