An Education

Finally caught An Education with Carey Mulligan and Peter Sarsgaard on a DVD rental over the weekend, and I completely see what all the fuss is about.

The casting is superb all-around, and the story is allowed to develop, almost unwind, at a reasonably slow, smooth pace. You completely believe you're watching an intelligent, insightful young girl (the character's sixteen and seventeen in the course of the movie) fall under the spell of a very charming older man. Too charming, of course, so you're always aware something very wrong is heading their direction.

Highly recommended.
