An Education

In a world where it is impossible to avoid the barrage of 3D action films, exploding bits of shrapnel into your face and charging you an extra £4 for the pleasure, it was wonderfully refreshing to see a film with good old-fashioned story telling at its heart.

I was blown away by the subtle yet deeply engaging story, so much so that I may be as bold as to say it was my favourite film of last year. I enjoyed The Hurt Locker no end, but if I had my way, I would have given An Education the highly sought after gold statue.

I also recently went to see The Blind Side with Sandra Bullock and was shocked, nay, appalled, that she had won the Oscar for her performance. The film was perfectly fine, but held up against the BAFTA winning performance of Carey Mulligan, there was no competition. Mulligan portrayed an interesting, elegant and mesmerizing character that  gripped me throughout. I suppose the surprising thing was that each and every character had the same effect, and it has been such a long time since I believed in every character in a film so wholeheartedly.

But please, do not take my word for it, if you still have not been to see An Education, then we are screening it, especially for you this Wednesday evening (28th April).
