Lone Scherfig’s An Education is a tight, compelling look a the schisms between England’s various societal crusts.

Anna (Film Grimoire) reblogged this and commented:

February's Genre Grandeur over at MovieRob focuses on coming of age films; a genre filled to the brim with developmental crises and life lessons. I reviewed An Education (2009), a film I enjoy very much. As always, check out the other Genre Grandeur reviews for this month as well! Additionally, I was honoured to be given the opportunity to choose the next focus for March Genre Grandeur. I chose Latin Director films, which is not technically a genre but I'm really excited about it anyway. Thanks Rob! If you love Latin directors be sure to join in!
