Very good movie with great acting and a keen sense of the period and its´ characters motivations. It is a pleasure to see the actors sparr off each other with such ease. A film experience filled with heartache and wonder.
Carey Mulligan, after some strong supporting parts, graduated to leading lady status with this incredible performance launching her career. Nick Hornby's script, based on the memoir by Lynn Barber, was aces full of solid characters full of flaws but also compassion. Strong supporting turns by Pike, Molina, Williams and especially co-lead Peter Sarsgaard. One can easily identify with the seduction offered.
Lovely, lovely little film. Mulligan's performance was outstanding. I loved the story and felt connected to Jenny, we have a lot in common. Sarsgaard was great being the charming older gentleman. This is a film every teenage girl should watch.
Very decent movie. Nothing extraordinary or memorable about it, but Mulligan does deliver a very strong performance, even if her character's actions may seem, at times, a bit forced or implausible. This is the kind of movie you would want to show to your younger sister, if you have one.
phony, phony piece of crap. what scherfig tells us is that you can have a vagina, you can even go against the grain, but you're screwed the moment you fall under the spell of the evil jew – but it's okay, because the grace of prim, proper higher education will always be there, and it's really that darn easy to just graduate from oxford with your nice little degree in english lit and conform. gag me with a spoon.
