An Education

A Film by: Lone Scherfig

It’s 1961 and attractive, bright 16-years.old schoolgirl, Jenny is poised on the brink of womanhood, dreaming of a rarefied, Gauloise-scented existence as she sings along to Juliette Greco in her Twickenham bedroom. Stifled by the tedium of adolescent routine, Jenny can’t wait for adult life to begin.
