"This is a prefromance and a film to cherish for this year and always" Los Angeles Times.

Schoolgirl Jenny (Carey Mulligan) is 16 and a virgin. Sophisticated David (Peter Sarsgaard) is twice her age and ready to pounce. The time is 1961. The place is England just before it learned to swing. So begins An Education, a quiet miracle of a movie that quickly disabuses you of the idea that you've seen it all before.

Directed by award-winning Danish filmmaker Lone Scherfig (ITALIAN FOR BEGINNERS, THE RIOT CLUB, THEIR FINEST) from a screenplay by Nick Hornby (HIGH FIDELITY, ABOUT A BOY).
