I'd Have Him Teach Me Any Day

I had a friend visiting from out of town, and one night we went to the picture show at the Egyptian, a grand old movie house complete with a balcony, ornate gold walls, and a red curtain that pulls back when the picture is about to start. We saw An Education, which I've been anticipating for months. Despite the predictable story line, I was enchanted. Peter Sarsgaard's seamless transition from charismatic to creepy and Cary Mulligan's amazing performance were enough to keep my toes all curled and biting my lip, but I couldn't help but sigh whistfully at the clothes.

Should you have the chance, see this movie. The opening credits are worth the price of admission!

Unfortunatley my little one keeps me from getting out to the movies very often, but I will definitely be netflixing this one!

I saw this and really liked it as well. The clothes were worth the price for me. :)

I've never even heard of that movie..? It's very frustrating, many great films don't even make it to the cinemas in the Netherlands! The pictures look great, so I'll definitely be watching out for it anyway! (and maybe good old Pirate Bay might help?)

It's a brilliant film - I saw it during the local film fest time a few months ago. I love the clothes and it really gives a feel of 60's Britain.
