I saw a great movie recently. It's an Oscar movie to boot. It's called An Education. I'm not sure if a lot of people have heard of it (I hadn't) as it's not your typical Hollywood movie, but if you get a chance I would recommend it. It's very well acted, especially by Carey Mulligan, the girl that plays the main character.
It's about a 16 year old girl in 1960s England who gets seduced by an older charismatic man. The movie is filled with surprises, most of which for me was how the parents handle this situation. I found myself both identifying with her as a young girl opening her eyes to the world around her and also scared for her as she takes more and more steps towards adulthood. I don't want to give anything away in case you see it but it is definitely one of those movies that makes you think and talk about it after you leave the theatre.
If you've seen it, I'd love to know what you thought!
Here's a trailer for the movie:
