if you never do anything, you never become anyone

an education (2009) is one of my all-time favourite films. it follows jenny (carey mulligan), a sixteen year old teen living in suburban london who hopes to study english at oxford university after her a levels. however, she soon falls for the seemingly worldly david goldman (peter sarsgaard), a man of almost twice her age. 

"i'm going to read what i want, and listen to what i want, and i'm going to look at paintings and watch french films, and i'm gonna talk to people who know lots about lots" - jenny
