Went to see An Education last night - absolutely loved it. A brilliant cast who all made the characters so memorable and real. I loved Rosamund Pike as the ditzy girlfriend and Alfred Molina as the unintentionally comic Father. The story really swept me along and I was completely caught up in the romance and excitement of it all. It made me rather nostalgic for those days when every experience was new and you were just beginning to see that the big, wide world had so much more to offer than the narrow path you were following. It made me laugh, cry, gasp and wince. Definitely a film worth seeing - and one that I keep thinking back to. Carey Mulligan is wonderful - and absolutely beautiful. Great soundtrack, beautiful cinematography.
