I’ve often disparaged films for denying us a character we can root for, but every rule has its exceptions, and if there’s anyone who can break the rules and get away with it, it’s Woody Allen.

I came to this film knowing nothing about it, except that it was based on the highly-acclaimed novel by Kazuo Ishiguru. I had no foreknowledge of its story or premise—and I’m glad.

It isn’t easy being a sleeper nowadays. There’s been so much buildup for An Education, which has traveled the film festival circuit since Sundance in January, that it’s difficult for ordinary moviegoers to feel as if they’re discovering it for themselves. I hope inflated expectations don’t harm the film’s reception: it really is quite good and deserving of all the buzz it has generated this year.
