We are delighted to announce you hereby the September’s English Language Movie Night entitled “An education”.
In 1961 London, Jenny Mellor is a 16-year-old schoolgirl on track to get accepted to Oxford University when she meets a charming Jewish businessman, David Goldman, who pursues her romantically. He takes her to concerts, clubs, and fine restaurants, and easily charms her parents into approving of the relationship. Later, Jenny discovers that David is a con man who makes money through a variety of shady practices. She is initially shocked but silences her misgivings in the face of David’s persuasive charm.
Soon, David takes Jenny to Paris as a birthday gift. Jenny’s parents invite Graham, a boy Jenny knows from Youth Orchestra, to Jenny’s birthday party, but David arrives and Graham goes home. When David proposes marriage, Jenny accepts and leaves school. She then discovers David is already married. When she reveals her discovery to David, he drops out of sight. Jenny despairs, feeling she has thrown her life away, but with the help of her favorite teacher, resumes her studies and is accepted at Oxford the following year.
