Director Lone Scherfig Exclusive Video Interview AN EDUCATION

     October 5, 2009


Opening this Friday is a fantastic film called “An Education”. The movie was written by Nick Hornby and it’s based on the memoir by Lynn Barber. Anyway, it’s a coming-of-age story about a teenage girl (Carey Mulligan) in 1960s suburban London and how her life changes after meeting a man nearly twice her age (Peter Sarsgaard). While the entire cast was great, Carey Mulligan’s performance was another level. Her work is exceptional and I think she’s a lock for getting nominated come awards season. Anyway, I recently say down with director Lone Scherfig and we talked about the challenges of making the movie and a lot more. Watch the interview after the jump:
