An Education

Sixteen-year-old Jenny Mellor played by Carey Mulligan in Lone Scherfig's An Education hopes to be accepted at Oxford University to read English. It is 1961 when her path crosses with that of David Goldman (played by Peter Sarsgaard) whose age exceeds her own by 14+ years. The older company she has come to keep causes her to pit the value of her formal education against the value of life experiences. While Mellor has a natural yearning to learn in the traditional sense, a chic culture-infused life in Paris strikes her as more worthwhile. Jenny Mellor is radiant and carries herself like a woman beyond her years. Throughout her pursuit of knowledge, no matter how rocky, she remains resolute in who she is as a person - a girl secure within herself.

  1. I love the parisian look. I think I need to read her memoir, sounds like a worthy and interesting read. Then I'll watch the movie :)
