4 Movie Clips from AN EDUCATION – Premiered at Sundance

The regrettable thing about Sundance is…no matter how many movies you manage to see, there will always be a few you miss. Unfortunately for me, this year it was director Lone Scherfig’s “An Education”.  And after hearing from everyone that it was one of the best films that played during the entire festival….it’s going to a long wait till the end of the year when Sony Pictures Classic is going to release it.
 
From what I heard, Carey Mulligan (who plays the lead and is pictured) is simply amazing. People are saying it’s a performance that you have to see. And this is from critics I really trust.
 

However, while we all have to wait till the end of the year to see the movie, I’ve been given 4 clips that you can watch now. And unlike most clips which are usually under a minute, these are pretty extended sequences, so you can really get a feel for the movie.

And since most of you might not know about the film yet…here’s the synopsis:

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, she’s a diligent student, excelling in every subject except the Latin that her father is convinced will land her a place at Oxford University where she is dreaming of going.
 

On a rainy day no different to all the others, her suburban life is upended by the arrival of an unsuitable suitor, 30-ish David (Peter Sarsgaard).  Urbane and witty, David instantly unseats Jenny’s stammering schoolboy admirer, Graham (Matthew Beard).  To her frank amazement, he even manages to charm her conservative parents Jack (Alfred Molina) and Marjorie (Cara Seymour) and effortlessly overcomes any instinctive objections to their daughter’s older, Jewish suitor.

Very quickly, David introduces Jenny to a glittering new world of classical concerts and late-night suppers with his attractive friend and business partner, Danny (Dominic Cooper) and Danny’s girlfriend, the beautiful but vacuous Helen (Rosamund Pike).  David replaces Jenny’s traditional education with his own version, picking her up from school in his Bristol roadster and whisking her off to art auctions and smoky clubs.
 

Just as Jenny’s family’s long-held dream of getting their brilliant daughter into Oxford seems within reach, Jenny is tempted by another kind of life. Will David be the making of Jenny or her undoing?

Finally, Cady wrote a glowing review of “An Education”, so click here to read it.
