An Education

Hello! How were your Thanksgivings? I had a wonderful time just being with my family and eating my weight in food.

Over the weekend I saw An Education, the movie about a young girl (Carey Mulligan) seduced by an older man (Peter Sarsgaard). The movie is exciting and adventurous as Jenny has expensive dinners, goes to concerts, and takes a trip to Paris with David. At the same time it makes you feel uncomfortable as she questions her morals and priorities. Despite the tension it is an intriguing story. I love the setting—London in the 60s. I am hoping to find the original memoir by Lynn Barber.

I am so intrigued by this film. Given the subject matter it will take an excellent director and outstanding actors to execute this film well.

Peter Saarsgard was great and Carrey wasn't so bad either.
