An Education.

Still of Peter Sarsgaard and Carey Mulligan in An Education

“Jenny ( Carey Mulligan) a very bright girl on the cusp of her 17th birthday, finds herself in a whirlwind romance with the much older David ( Peter Sarsgaard). Prior to meeting him, Jenny was working hard at secondary school to ensure getting to Oxford University. When she sees the lifestyle David can provide, one she never imagined could be hers, she’s hooked and thoughts of Oxford are forgotten. Then, when things are looking pretty good for Jenny with the dashing ( yet a little too smooth) David, the truth hits her like a ton of bricks. Jenny goes from being a bright eyed school girl and a sophisticated young lady, all the way back to questioning if she really knows who she is at all.”

Geter and I really enjoyed this movie, but the guy behind us who fell asleep and kept making disgusting snorting noises wasn’t the biggest fan… but I think he might be the worlds most productive sleeper, because he managed to “keep up with the plot” from the back of his eye lids..I know this because he would wake up at random moments and laugh or make some random comment…not sure how he worked that one out…I’d like to figure out how he is so talented, maybe I could use those skills during class…
