An Education by Lone Scherfig, 2008 (PG-13)

with Carey Mulligan (Drive, Shame, Never Let Me Go), Olivia Williams (The Ghost Writer, Anna Karenina) Alfred Molina (Chocolat), Cara Seymour, Matthew Beard, Peter Sarsgaard, Amanda Fairbank-Hynes, Ellie Kendrick, Dominic Cooper (Captain America), Rosamund Pike (Pride and Prejudice, Surrogates, Barney's Version), Emma Thompson (Brave, Men in Black 3, Love Actually), Sally Hawkins (Never Let Me Go)
From the director of "One Day"

Jenny's (Oscar nominee Carey Mulligan) Oxford-bound teen life is a bore in 1961 London until she's given a different kind of education after being immersed in the beguiling but hazardous world of much-older David (Peter Sarsgaard). Even Jenny's parents, Jack (Alfred Molina) and Marjorie (Cara Seymour), are intrigued by him, but her unimpressed teacher (Olivia Williams) works to keep Jenny's entire future from crumbling under David's influence.

Olivia Williams stole the movie, didn't she? The movie is really good, the game everyone plays is very well held until the end, where everyone learns its lesson, the movie is an education for far many more characters than just Jenny. Great cinematography, great dialogues refreshingly free of harsh judgements, a journey that everyone would wish to have, despite the downside of it, and I believe that is why it is so good. It makes you question what in the end is the right thing to do.
