What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Kenneth Turan A magical memoir
Laetitia Pople Ontwaking op vooraand van seksuele revolusie
Theresa Smith School of life 60's style ...
Cathleen Rountree A perfect coming of age tale for every age.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Jason Anderson Unfortunately, the denouement isn’t nearly as interesting as that and An Education’s second half flags badly. Amid all this confusion, Mulligan’s charm only goes so far.
Peter Travers A quiet miracle of a movie that quickly disabuses you of the idea that you've seen it all before.
Tomatometer Though the latter part of the film may not appeal to all, An Education is a charming coming-of-age tale powered by the strength of relative newcomer Carey Mulligan's standout performance.
