Worth watching if its raining - An Education review by Ben

Spoiler Alert

Overall not bad, the father character was quite entertaining and held my interest when it might otherwise have waned. The dim witted trophy girlfriend of one of the supporting characters was quite amusing too. However I felt unsatisfied at the end, the film had no real impact. In fact only a day later I am struggling to remember any impactful moments that have lasted in my memory.

Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy it, but it wasn't overly good, or overly bad. Just OK.

good british 60's set film - An Education review by CA

Spoiler Alert

good actors & plot, the title is right for the film as it is the parents who need to be taught an education more than the girl as the were took in by the man more so as they should have known he was too good to be true.

Enchanting...loved this - An Education review by JR

Spoiler Alert

Really great film. Loved all the actors in this and thought they depicted the 60s (or what I imagine it to be like) very well. Really exciting and romantic and also very Sad.
