An Education: OUT TODAY!



An Education

Carey Mulligan has become a name to look out for, thanks in large part to her role in last year's British hit An Education. Not only was the film nominated for both the Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay Oscars, but Mulligan herself garnered widespread acclaim for her role as Jenny Mellor, a high school girl who is swept into a relationship with an older man, creating complications in her personal life. Though its central premise is nothing new, most felt that An Education delivered a mature portrayal of May-December romance and singled out Mulligan for her charming, nuanced performance.

In fact, though the Best Actress race ultimately became a showdown between Meryl Streep and Sandra Bullock, many critics expressed admiration for the way Mulligan carried her picture, even in the midst of a talented cast that included Peter Sarsgaard, Alfred Molina, Rosamund Pike, and Emma Thompson. It only opened in limited release stateside, so if you missed it when it hit theaters, now's your chance to catch up Kiddas!

I received my copy in the mail today via Netflix, whoo-hoo! I'll report on the film in the next couple days...so hold on tight.
