Peter Sarsgaard Exclusive Video Interview AN EDUCATION

     October 6, 2009


As I’ve been saying for the past few days…opening this Friday is a fantastic film called “An Education”. The movie was written by Nick Hornby and it was based on a 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 believe she’s a lock for getting nominated come awards season. Anyway, I recently say down with Peter Sarsgaard and we talked box office numbers, Twitter, the Nintendo Wii, filming the movie, his next film “Wichita”, and a lot more. It’s one of those all over the place interviews and that’s why it’s great. Take a look:

Finally, click here for a review of “An Education” and here’s some clips from the film.
