an education on "an education"

Ah, aren't these pictures stunning?? I saw this movie last weekend with hardly any knowledge of what it was about, a part from the main controversy that it told the story of an affair between a young girl and an older man. But contrary to what one may suppose, this movie was very clean and beautiful.  It takes place in 1960's Britain, where a bright young school girl is swept up in love affair with a charming and worldly older man, and chronicles the choices she now must face regarding her future and her heart. 

Like I said, I was very impressed with the clean content; although the subject matter is obviously adult, you don't see anything you don't want to see, and you don't hear anything you don't want to hear, which is very refreshing! And I love Carey Mulligan in this; she is one to keep an eye on, she may be one of my new favorites!

Visually, this was one of the most beautiful movies I have ever seen-- the costumes, oh my goodness. Can I please have every single outfit in this film? As I was watching, I felt like I had traveled back in time! These pictures are but a mere little sampling of the gorgeous aesthetics that this movie has to offer.

Ok, now I feel like movie reviewer. But I just had to share these beautiful pictures! Have a great night!

  9. aahh I saw this a couple weeks ago and I loved it! The costumes are amazing!!! My favorite part is the ending. I see this as one of my new go-to movies for inspiration because of the design/costume/era.
