This was a charming girl movie, perfect for girls night out, or date night. The lead actress reminds me of a younger Katie Holmes. She was doe eyed and she drew you into her character qucikly. Wonderful film.

Posted: 12/6/2009A review of An Education by Ljouwert9
This is a coming of age story in 1960's London about 16 year old schoolgirl Jenny (played by Carey Mulligan) who is seduced by thirty something David. David (played charmingly by Peter Sarsgaard) is a lovable, seemingly kind guy who turns out to be a married grifter, thief and liar, as well as a pedophile. Not only does David seduce Jenny, he cons her naive parents into letting him take their 16 year old daughter for a weekend to Oxford, and later for a weekend to Paris, where he takes her virginity. If David had been Catholic, Protestant, Russian Orthodox or any other religion, I don't believe the subject would have come up, since his religion matters not one iota to the story, does not further the story line, or is relevant in any other discernible way. But he is not. He is a Jew, a fact which David mentions almost immediately after coming on screen, reiterates numerous times, and lest anyone should forget, is mentioned by other characters in the movie from time to time. This gratuitous anti-Semitic bias of the film, for there is no other explanation for it, is appalling. To make the antagonist, who is married, a father, a liar, a thief and a pedophile a Jew for no discernible reason is deplorable and reprehensible.
