Oscar Contender Trailer: ‘An Education’

ON

Yahoo has debuted the first trailer for Sony Pictures Classics’ festival favorite An Education, a film we were just discussing yesterday with an emphasis on its star Carey Mulligan who plays Jenny, a teenage girl living in Britain in the early 1960s on the cusp of the strait-laced, post-war period and the free-spirited decade to come. Along with Mulligan the film stars Peter Sarsgaard, Alfred Molina, Emma Thompson, Dominic Cooper and Rosamund Pike.

An Education hits theaters on October 9, and I can’t wait to see it. After watching the trailer browse our gallery of 33 images from the film and get the complete synopsis here.
