An Education on Perfection

After waiting for months to see An Education, I finally got to see it tonight. After seeing it I wish I had seen it earlier so that I could have watched it and savored it fifteen times by now.

An Education was a film that should be seen without interruption, while eating crepes and sipping champagne.

As I am obsessed with all things vintage especially the 50s and 60s this was a showcase of all things "Meaghan". The set and costume design is to be envied, after watching I wanted to be transported into the wardrobe of Jenny and live in her home and visit the places she did.

The writing is just superb. The characters are layered, smart and engaging. The dialogue makes you wish you had those smart and quick things to say.

The soundtrack fits so perfectly well with the rest of the beautiful masterpiece of a film it calls for immediate download.

After only seeing Carey Mulligan, in small roles in Pride and Prejudice and Public Enemies, I am glad to know her as an actress as she was just enchanting. She played a naive girl but at the same time gave such wisdom and depth to a character you wish you knew.

Peter Sansgaard excelled in this role and I hope he is able to find more parts that allow him to create characters equivalent to this caliber of acting.

If you haven't seen An Education yet go out and rent it. Relish in its perfection.
