Did You Know?

Trivia

The leading part of Kathy proved to be difficult to cast. Peter Rice, head of Fox Searchlight, was attending a screening of An Education (2009) and texted Mark Romanek halfway through, saying simply "Hire the genius Mulligan". As it turned out, Carey Mulligan was a huge fan of the novel and thought that Kathy was her dream part. See more »

wow
15 January 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I class myself as a rough and ready kind of guy, drinking and spending time with the lads down the local....leaving any comment on IMDb is something i DON'T do......but let me just say that this film (only watched because i was bored waiting for the football) blew me away. The cast and everything was perfect..... a touching and heart breaking story. This film deserves as much attention as many of the blockbusters that have been and gone.

8 out of 10.....wow

I've been advised that my comments are too short so i must say more. So, as i would like to recommend this film to everyone i will continue. I don't want to mention much about the story as i feel its best watching knowing as little as poss....the characters will shine out and hopefully engross you....its not full of action etc but boy.....it will pack a punch. To be honest, it makes me feel more appreciative of my family and friends and what little time we have we them
