An Education ★★★½

I have to say that even though this wouldn’t be my first choice for a movie to watch, Lone Scherfig creates such a tone with her direction that it’s hard not to enjoy the viewing experience for me. Normally I would be too creeped out by the older guy dating a high school girl story that I wouldn’t invest any time in it but the con man angle of it really gives the main character a sense of the deception being thrown at her. It’s a real education for the viewer about how to accept that anyone can be conned and not to always trust the confidence others place onto you.
