An Education {4✭

Excellent.

Somehow this film captured it brilliantly.

When my teenagers come to me and bicker about how they hate school and it’s a total waste of time I might show them this film, then take them on an adventure, and then tell them to go back to school and read. and read what you love. I’ll tell them to read whatever makes them come alive. And you don’t find your favorite food by starving yourself.

Somewhere in the jazzy songs and sparkly dresses and dancing I was completely captivated, even though I knew it might be a mistake. This is one I’d like to own.

It was superbly satisfying.
