An Education – 3.75 stars

An Education.  A fine period (1961 Twickenham, London, Paris) and coming of age piece, anchored by a very engaging Carey Mulligan as a 16 year old schoolgirl who dreams of Oxford until she is swept off her feet by an older man.  Rosamund Pike also damn near steals the picture as the arm candy of a British fast liver.  But it is no more than a nice little picture, and the idea that it is nominated for Best Picture is just one more example of the silliness of ten such nominations.
