I think this was a sweet and sour film, which I love. It didn't attempt to find the happy ending of a story, but just the appropriate one. Jenny wanted the fun life of a party girl, but settled for what was in the end her only realy option. As far as the Jewish themes, come on people, this wasn't anti-semetic in the least. It was the times. That's just how some people were. If there's an american film that talks about African Americans doesn't mean the whole movie is about slavery. jeez! get a grip and realize everything isn't about you!

Ithought the writing a bit heavy-handed at times. I'd to read the original story. Does anyone have the name of the author? And I want to know the title of the first song in the movie, when they're doing the montage of the schoolgirls. It's an old, '60s instrumental.

So boring! Snore fest, cannot believe it was nominated for awards. Unoriginal!

Great movie! Bottom line is women are emotionally dumb and men are cowards.

Really great film. Carey Mulligan is a great young actress.

posted by Bea on Apr 12, 2010 08:44:57

Nice movie and I think the important thing that makes it interesting is the truth of how much we are left without proper guidance when we need it most.

posted by AA on Apr 11, 2010 09:07:43

Its absolutely beautiful, it captures the essence of pure love with its downfalls. I think it deserved an award for certain. Its lovely and memorable.

Well done

I really enjoyed it. For those who are accusing it of anti-semitism, it is based on true events. The real 'David' (Simon in the memoir) was Jewish. Were they supposed to change this fact to avoid offending people?

The movie was good, but its lasting contributions to my life will be "Smoke Without Fire" by Duffy and "Your Heart Is As Black As Night" by Melody Gardot, which are two songs that have swept me off my feet.

I really enjoyed it! For all the naysayers: it was based on true events...

Old story retold No originality

posted by An Education on Feb 23, 2010 02:26:07

From the very start, this movie portrayed jewish people in a very unflattering manor. The storyline had nothing to do with religion.The only purpose of having the character jewish, was for the author to portray his anti semitic feeling. SHAME ON YOU !

posted by An Education on Feb 21, 2010 07:35:27

Loved it, did not want it to end! Beautifully done, great acting cannot wait for the soundtrack ;)

Honestly one of the best movies I've had the good luck to see in a while. A great coming of age, I suggest it to anyone.

posted by movied on Feb 13, 2010 10:07:07

This movie tends to promote false stereotyping of Jews and anti-Semitic feelings. The movie is not only about David’s character as such. It constantly reminds the viewer that it was a Jew who was blatantly dishonest, and who tried hard to seduce a young and brilliant English girl. David’s portrait combined with the attitude and comments of Jenny’s father and the “educational” lesson given to Jenny by her school official leave little doubt about the objectives of this less than innocent “masterpiece.” Shame on all responsible for its production!

Absolutely, positively one of the best movies I have seen in a long, long time. The story itself, characters, and the music throughout was screaming Oscar, Oscar, Oscar!

Performance of main actress is outstanding! Soundtrack is excellent!

posted by Amelie on Jan 27, 2010 05:59:11

the name of the song in the end of the movie is: smoke without fire(duffy)

posted by belu on Jan 24, 2010 08:27:06

Found it difficult to believe that parents who wanted their 16 year old to do well in school so she'd be accepted into Oxford would let her go off with an older man - made the whole movie ridiculous.

Awesome movie that is for sure! Loved it! Woohoo!

This is the best movie I have seen all year..just outstanding..a great love story. I saw it twice and ordered the book, and want the music!!

Dialouge Great, Actors fantastic, Wardrobe Great, Music - AWESOME!

Fascinating, but rather unsettling in terms of the parents' reaction (or rather, lack thereof) to their teenage daughter's affair with a much older man.

posted by Robin on Nov 30, 2009 10:28:10

Wow what a sensual movie! I could not imagine that movies like this were still able to be made! Of course the story is your old classic young girl older man, but it is a tender love and a change of violence and sex on the screen. Good message for women out there! Love is beautiful, but education is your best friend!

Where can I find the music from the film please?
