  • Disarming and unexpectedly poignant, An Education contrasts the knowledge learned in school with that learned from life. show more

    Excellent production, scripting, directing, and acting. Nicely paced with perfect timing. Totally believable in being psychologically valid. Characters are nicely developed and quite real.
