In Theaters Today: An Education

An Education is in [limited] U.S. theaters today (October 9th), starring Carey Mulligan and Rosamund Pike.

This is one of the most [Oscar] buzzed about films of 2009.

So, to those of you who live (and lucky enough to be) in NYC and L.A., go see Carey and Ros in this movie!

Set in 1960s London, An Education finds Jenny (Mulligan), a teenage girl just waiting to break free from her boring school life and conservative parents. That escape comes from a disarming older gentleman David (Peter Sarsgaard) who takes her out onto the city's club scene and introduces her to his good friend and business partner Danny (Dominic Cooper) and his unintentionally funny girlfriend Helen (Rosamund Pike).

Read an article about Lynn Barber, whose memoir was adapted for the big screen, which is now this movie, An Education. As movie of writer and journalist's memoir An Education reaches the screen, she tells of double life after meeting a conman.

Lynn Barber: My age of innocence

At a party the other day someone asked me quite seriously what I thought about the Oscar chances for “my” film, An Education.

Lucy Bevan, the casting director, had already started looking for an actress to play me. They knew it would have to be an unknown, because she was meant to be only 16, but they wanted someone with a bit of experience, and eventually found Carey Mulligan, who had done a memorable episode of Dr Who and played one of the Bennet sisters in Joe Wright’s Pride and Prejudice. When Nick heard she was 22 he had a fit. “I thought they’d buggered it up because I couldn’t believe there was a 22-year-old girl in contemporary Britain who looks innocent in any way. But when I saw Carey’s screen test, I knew she was completely fine, and when I saw her in her school uniform, I thought, oh my God, she looks 14!”

And Rosamund Pike clamoured to play the small part of Helen because “no one ever lets me be funny”.
