An Education

 

In A Nutshell: Jenny (Carey Mulligan) is a clever girl destined for Oxford but who has her head turned to the glitzy London life lived by older man, David (Peter Sarsgaard).

Good Points: Carey Mulligan is  fab actress and it is a sweet, coming of age film that would appeal to a wide audience. Plus, ditzy Helen (Rosamund Pike) is a joy to behold.

Bad Points: The character of Jenny is a bit of a pretentious brat.

Good For: Anyone who went to school in the 60s (I would imagine) and brainy people with high expectations.

Overall: 4/5
