An Education

Rating = B

The acting is excellent, as is the look of this film. Still, I can't give it the A rating that some of the real critics give it. Despite being based on real events, the naivety of the 16-year old girl's parents feels unreal; and the 35-year old man seducing the 16-year old girl is too disturbing.
