The most touching scene: To be free not as a man but as a soul.

My favorite author of all time will always be Victor Hugo. I read the unabridged version of Les Miserables when I was but a boy of 16 and I always say it’s my favorite book of all time. No other book comes close. But let’s not dwell on how beautiful the book is. I’m here to do a review of perhaps the movie of 2012. I’m not going to dawdle on the details nor am I going to bring you the staples of movie reviews.

Movie Review: An Education

A brilliant coming of age film

Rotten Tomatoes reviews

The real reason I piqued an interest in this movie is due to my favorite English actress Carrey Mulligan starring in this film. Other reason was that I watched Never Let Me Go (link is to book review, I never wrote a film review which I just realized now >.<) before this film and I loved her acting there which also makes me a jerk for not watching this in 2009. I had to download this film the moment I saw that she was starring in it and how she garnered nominations for her role!

In any case, on with the review, shall we?
