Movie of the Week: An Education

I had a good feeling I would like this film going given that the screenplay was written by Nick Hornby, one of my favorite authors, but what surprised we was how light and entertaining it was.  When I heard the basic story and heard all the Oscar buzz, I did not expect there to be as much humor as there was.

All the acting was great particularly relative newcomer Carey Mulligan as Jenny and Alfred Molina as Jenny’s father, Jack.

The only thing I didn’t like was how neatly everything wrapped up in the end.  It’s a small quibble but it did bug me a little bit because everything had been going so well.
