The second movie I’ve seen this year (it still sounds foreign) is An Education. It is a coming-of-age drama about a girl who falls in love with a girl who has shown her “the life” which she has dreamt for while struggling to study to get into another dream of hers – Oxford University.
The storyline is pretty much easier to comprehend, and it’s very British. I don’t know, but British films have their own flair that screams “BRITISH!!” The screenplay is superb and Carey Mulligan is just astonishing. She really nailed and It was very great to see. Alfred Molina was also an interesting character who deserves critical praise. When I watched this movie, I remembered the Philippines’ “Ang Pagdadalaga ni Maximo Oliveros” which has the same theme – the world teaching us valuable lessons as we grow old. Also, my experience watching this is so much better as compared to watching The Hurt Locker, which was damn heavy.
I. Hate. War. Flicks.
