Rated PG-13 · 99 min. · 2010

A precocious middle-class London high-school student named Jenny (in a magnetic performance by Carey Mulligan) falls head over heels for an urbane, generous older man named David (Peter Sarsgaard, with a veneer of charm) and takes off with him to the opera, a trip to Paris, etc., circa 1961. But there’s something a bit dodgy about David and his friends. Danish move-over director Lone Scherfig (she did Italian for Beginners) tells this cautionary tale with a maximum of visual and verbal style and lets her able cast do the rest, led by Mulligan and Sarsgaard: Alfred Molina as Jenny’s boring old father, Emma Thompson and Olivia Williams as her concerned school masters, and Sally Hawkins in a quick, pithy role as the other woman. The smart screenplay was adapted by sometime-novelist Nick Hornby from a memoir by journalist Lynn Barber (95 min.).
