ARTS :: An Education

I ordered An Education on Netflix a few weeks back and there is something about it that I can't get out of my head.
Maybe it's the slightly creepy and very tragic relationship between a high schooler and a much older man. Maybe it's the 1960s fashion. Maybe its just Carey Mulligan. Do I really have to add another girl to my girl crush file? This is getting fairly ridiculous.

An Education is based on journalist Lynn Barber's experiences. I love a true story.
Unfortunately, upon further digging into Ms. Barber's life, I discovered this article in which she admits to sleeping with 50 men during two 8 week terms at Oxford University. Do the math. That means she slept with someone new about every other day. That's not quite as romantic.

Til next time!
