An Education

December 22, 2009

Just saw An Education.

Great movie. It was my grammar school to a tee. For anyone – especially any woman – who went to an all-girls  British grammar school in the sixties, this movie will bring it back to you.

The acting is brilliant. There are some wonderful scenes that I seem to remember from my childhood. In one wonderful scne, a teenage girl wonders why she is boring herself learning Latin so that she can go to Oxford, learn Latin and then return to teach it and bore a whole new generation of girls.

I actually remember a friend of mine delivering the same speech about algebra.

A nice change from the Hollywood pap.
