Rich, satisfying cinematic experience

"If people die the moment that they graduate, then surely it's the things we do beforehand that count."

Over recent years, movie-goers have been subjected to countless coming-of-age tales imbued with a plot concerning a young, naïve person who receives a preview of the adult world lying in wait for them. Directed by Lone Scherfig and scripted by Nick Hornby, 2009's An Education is ... read more

I was in complete awww with this film all the way through! I think, like most British films that cap off a few Oscar nominations are very underrated even if it gets a Best Picture nomination. An Education is a very beautiful film that is very heartfelt and emotional. The film itself is an educational lesson because it teaches teenagers who are 16-17 to make the most of the rest of their childhood ... read more

Why is it that some of us work ourselves to death in the monotony of reading, studying and paper-writing for years, while others seem to find a way to lead a relaxed existence without needing to do any of that stuff? I look at people who have managed to live more than comfortably thanks to the fact that they have connections or simply because they've been hardcore go-getters since they were very y... read more

Description: It’s 1961 and attractive, bright 16-year-old schoolgirl, Jenny (Carey Mulligan) is poised on the brink of womanhood, dreaming of a rarefied, Gauloise-scented existence as she sings along to Juliette Greco in her Twickenham bedroom. Stifled by the tedium of adolescent routine, Jenny can’t wait for adult life to begin. Meanwhile, sh ... (more)

Unexpected ending/twist (9 movies items)

"I thought this was going to be just a plain love story, where the much older guy teaches the young girl the ways of the world, which explained the title. but it wasn't that simple. i actually found parts of the movie believable, and the emotions displayed by the actors genuine."

A good movie

“Since I kept hearing good things about this movie (it was even one of the best movies in 2009 according to Roger Ebert), I was really eager to watch it. Honestly, even though I enjoyed the story, I still think it was not really original and really predictable. Furthermore, they try to give it a positive note (it was 'an education' for her after all...), I wasn't really convinced especially with the ending when she finally gets dumped, she goes back to her study, you get some uplifting music and eventually she basically decides to pretend that the whole thing didn't happen. Still, even though the story was not really mindblowing but it was still enter” read more
