Maybe I'll Learn Something...

I'll admit it, despite thinking Sundance is a bit of a watered down affair compared to what it used to be, I'm excited to hear the positive news/reviews circulating about Lone Scherfig's "An Education". I've been anticipating this movie since news of the cast and stills were released, and they were quite promising. (Also, it's written by Nick Hornby so it can't be bad surely?)
Set in 1961, it's a coming-of-age story, I suppose, about Jenny (Carey Mulligan - Kitty in Pride & Prejudice, 2005), an intelligent young girl with a bright future who meets David (Pete Sarsgaard), a 30 year old who charms her with his wealth and extravagance, and introduces her to a completely different life. She starts pal-ing around with his chic, worldly friends (Rosamund Pike and Dominic Cooper), and against her father's wishes (Alfred Molina), drifts further away from the future he wants her to have.

Let's fact it, the clothes in the film aren't exactly hideous so if the plot turns out to be awful, at least you'll have something to look at...
