Just saw An Education.
Great movie. It was my grammar school to a tee. For anyone – especially any woman – who went to an all-girlsÂ 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.
