A movie about a teenage girl who meets a older man and falls in love with him. The plot is simple but the writing doesn't have any cliché or boring moments.
Both Carey Mulligan and Peter Saarsgard are great. Costume designs are great (the movie takes place in 60s) and directing is very good. These are the good sides.
Bad sides are: Some events happen so quick like Jenny is suddenly in David and his friends' life. And the end... The end is the worst part of the movie Jenny regrets what she did and she realizes how she ruined her future.She goes to her favorite teacher and studies and she graduate and goes to university.
Where's the pain, crying for months for her mistakes? I find the end really quick, too. 7/10
