Do you know those films that you can re-watch time after time yet never seem to tire of? An Education is that kind of film for me. It is flawlessly filmed, effortlessly timeless and entirely gripping. If you haven’t watched it, you simply must. If you fancy yourself as a bit of a francophile then you will particularly love it as there are endless references to Albert Camus, Jacques Brel and of course Paris. For some reason the below photos reminded me so much of the Paris scene where Jenny & David epitomise two lovers in the city of love, walking hand in hand along the Seine, running down the iconic steps in Montmartre and picnicking in the park under Pont Neuf. This scene makes up only a very small part of the film but boy is it a good one.

I love An Education! Actually, I’ve watched it twice recently. Jenny’s character is magnificent and Carey’s performance is Oscar-worthy. Also, the story is beautiful even though the end is sad. Needless to say, Nick Hornby is one of my favorite authors. :)

I completely agree I love her so much one of my favourite actresses! I know it’s such a touching film – I haven’t read the book yet but really need to if the film is anything to go by
