An Education

I loved this film.  I didn't know if Peter Skaarsgard is english. I always thought he was an american.  Gotta google him, latter.  I know that he chooses really interesting films.  Dark, harsh and edgy films.  I think he's married to Maggie Gyllenhaal.  Well, he brings the charm and believable charm to charm a 17 year old girl with a bright future.

I recognized the female star but couldn't place my finger on where I saw her.  CAREY MULLIGAN was really good in this film. She has a charm about her and she reminds me of  Audrey Hepburn.  She has a sophisticated way of acting. Or that just the sophistication that was called for her character and she nailed it.
Other notable names in the film are Oliver Molina and Emma Thompson.  I enjoyed this film.

The Young Victoria

The Young Victoria is a historical  film depicting the young Queen Victoria of England played by Emily Blunt.  I have always been intrigued by the English Monarch.  I don't know how faithful the film was to the real life of the Queen.  I love this love story.  Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.    It was beautiful and I really enjoyed watching this film.  I'd add this to my collection and have my girls watch this.
