In addition to the trailer they just released for Despicable Me, Yahoo! Movies has also put up the trailer for Lone Scherfig’s “An Education” starring Peter Sarsgaard, Alfred Molina, Emma Thompson, and featuring Carey Mulligan who gives what many are calling a breakthrough performance and perhaps the next hot female talent in Hollywood. She’s already being rumored for a supporting role in “Money Never Sleeps”, Oliver Stone’s sequel to “Wall Street” starring Shia LaBeouf, Michael Douglas, and Javier Bardem. Hopefully the hype won’t create unrealistic expectations but I trust those who saw the film at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and couldn’t stop raving about her work in this film.
Check out the trailer after the jump, along with a brief synopsis. “An Education” begins a limited release in theatres on October 9th.
In the post-war, pre-Beatles London suburbs, a bright schoolgirl (Mulligan) is torn between studying for a place at Oxford and the more exciting alternative offered to her by a charismatic older man (Sarsgaard).
