An Education

Whenever new movies come out, I tend to put them in one of two categories; movies to see in the theater and movies to put on my Netflix list. I remember reading a review of An Education recently (in Rolling Stone maybe?) and thinking it would fall into the Netflix column. It sounded like a film I'd want to check out, but nothing I was in a hurry to see or that would be impressive on the big screen. After seeing these still shots from the movie, I'm reconsidering.

It's lovely! Go see it. The atmosphere is great and the story isn't bad either.

Definitely, I can't wait for it! I saw her @ Letterman Show a couple weeks ago, she's strangely beautiful.

i really want to see this, i dunno if I have anyone to go with

Kelley Anne said...

Oh I want to see this so badly! I have to admit that although I've heard great things about the acting, directing, etc. the costumes are also a big part of my desire to get to the theater for it.

Frances Baker said...

Wow. It looks so good! I love the costumes, which would be enough to convince me to go anyway.

basically all that hollywood has to do to get me to watch movies is have them set in the 50s/early 60s. these stills are gorgeous!

I am majorly crushing on Carey Mulligan right now. She's all sorts of amazing, from her hair to her clothing style and of course, her bri'ish accent.

Like hundreds of others, I can't wait to see this movie!

Lexie said...

i think peter sarsgaard(sp?) is a very talented guy! i definitely want to see this ... but it doesnt look like the type of film that will come to my area! :(

It's my first post here. I'm french and I went to see this movie two weeks ago in a festival. The story is okay. But, to me, it was a pleasure for the eyes, especially on a big sreen. Almost every outfit is beautiful to look at. And it's true that Carey Mulligan is wonderful in this movie.

Great blog.

i actually read a review of this movie in a nylon magazine - maybe that's where you saw it? anyway i'm really excited for this movie. i heard many good things about it, the costumes look amazing, and peter sarsgaard is a great actor.

Isabel said...

Oh man, the lead actress is so cute!

the spectator said...

From these images it looks as if it's got the English version of the Mad Men vibe.

caramelizedvintage said...

Such beautiful clothes. I adore that brown coat! I've never heard of the movie before, but it looks like a feast for the eyes.

Jenny said...

This does look cool!

Martyna said...

flower dress is really beutifull.i have to see this film because these shots are really nice.

the spectator said...

P.S. I was thinking about your dress in the last post - white polka dots on blue - isn't it a timeless combination - always fresh and in this instance, very elegantly pretty

Helen said...

I really want to see this now too! It's by Nick Hornby too which I know will always be good.

LML said...
