An Education Movie Trailer

An Education

Sony Pictures Classics has released a trailer for An Education, a film which was subject to one of the few intense bidding wars at this year’s Sundance. Jenny is a top A-level student who has hopes of attending university at Oxford in the early 1960′s, but she meets a charismatic older man (Peter Sarsgaard) who offers an exciting alternative of seeing and experiencing life.

The story is adapted from Lynn Barber’s memoirs by British novelist Nick Hornby, best known to Americans as the writer of the books High Fidelity, About A Boy and Fever Pitch. The film features a notable performance from Carey Mulligan. After seeing this picture, you too will be convinced she could be the next big thing.
