An education

Today I saw the film An education for the first time. It's a real gem ... Carey Mulligan was award nominated for her leading part as Jenny but, to my mind, the performances of Alfred Molina (as Jenny's father), Cara Seymour (her mother) and Rosamund Pike (Helen) are equally deserving. And smaller parts, like that of Matthew Beard (as outgunned suitor Graham) demand real attention.

I shall be watching it again (or rewatching it, or rereading it, if Unreal Nature is listening!) more than once, at the earliest opportunity.
