An Education (2009)

An Education (2009) – A star-making movie for Carey Mulligan.  She’s just adorable.  The writing is also quite spot-on and the acting is great all-around.  Alfred Molina starts as a caricature but sort of peels back the layers as the film goes on.  Cara Seymour has very little substantive dialogue but manage to convey a lot with just looks.  Peter Sarsgaard manages the balance between creepy and charming to make the story believable [although the fact that it really happened should take care of that anyway].
