Shel­tered school­girl Jenny ( Carey Mul­li­gan, pic­tured) dreams of at­tend­ing Ox­ford Univer­sity un­til she falls in love with a rich, so­phis­ti­cated man nearly twice her age ( Peter Sars­gaard). As David in­tro­duces her to a glam­orous life, the at­trac­tion of a tough aca­demic ca­reer be­gins to pale. As her par­ents ( Al­fred Molina and Cara Sey­mour) and teach­ers ( Emma Thomp­son and Olivia Wil­liams) de­spair she is throw­ing away her gifts for a life of idle­ness, Jenny ques­tions what she wants from life. Writer Nick Hornby ( About a Boy) beau­ti­fully con­trasts lessons of the head and the heart.
