SYNOPSIS: "Jenny (Carey Mulligan) is destined for Oxford University. However, her eyes are opened to a world of glamorous possibility when she meets David (Peter Sarsgaard)." (

'An Education' may have been the film to deservedly propel Carey Mulligan onto a wider stage but it is also a fantastic showcase of other British talent from the more seasoned Alfred Molina, Emma Thompson, and Olivia Williams to the young pretenders such as Rosamund Pike and Dominic Cooper. Nominated for three Academy Awards - namely Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay for Nick Hornby and Best Actress for Mulligan.
