Headmistress: Nobody does anything worth doing without a degree.

Jenny: Nobody does anything worth doing WITH a degree. No woman anyway.

Headmistress: So what I do isn’t worth doing? Or what Miss Stubbs does, or Mrs. Wilson, or any of us here? Because none of us would be here without a degree. You do realize that, don’t you? And yes, of course studying is hard and boring…

Jenny: Boring!

Headmistress: I’m sorry?

Jenny: Studying is hard and boring. Teaching is hard and boring. So, what you’re telling me is to be bored, and then bored, and finally bored again, but this time for the rest of my life? This whole stupid country is bored! There’s no life in it, or color, or fun! It’s probably just as well the Russians are going to drop a nuclear bomb on us any day now. So my choice is to do something hard and boring, or to marry my… Jew, and go to Paris and Rome and listen to jazz, and read, and eat good food in nice restaurants, and have fun! It’s not enough to educate us anymore Ms. Walters. You’ve got to tell us why you’re doing it.

Miss Stubbs: You seem to be old and wise.

Jenny: I feel old. But not very wise.

Jack: Knowing a famous author is better than becoming one. It shows you’re connected.

Jenny: When were you going to tell me?

David: Soon, it just never seemed like the right time. You seemed so happy, and I was happy…

Jenny: You were living with your wife all this time, around the corner! Byron Avenue. It’s no wonder we kept bumping into each other, is it? What number?

David: 34. Don’t be like this, come on.

Jenny: I have nothing. I didn’t take my exams. I… I left school. Where’s it all gone now?

Jenny: One of the boys I dated, and they were boys, suggested that we go to Paris and I said I’d always wanted to see Paris. As if I’d never been!

Jack: We have to have this out. Well, if you won’t do it, I will. I’m still your father.

Jenny: You’re my father again now, are you? And what were you when you encouraged me to throw my life away? Silly schoolgirls are always getting seduced by glamorous older men, but what about you two?

An Education is set in the 1960s. The screenplay is  written by English novelist Nick Hornb. As to the story-line,  Mulligan plays Jenny, a schoolgirl in the drab London suburb of Twickenham in 1961. Jenny is being  well molded by her parents (Cara Seymour and Alfred Molina) for an Oxford education with total obedience. 

She does every effort to maximize her chances of getting into Oxford, ranged from Latin-studying and piano-playing.  One day, caught in the rain on the way home from an orchestra rehearsal, she’s offered a ride by a stranger who named David (Peter Sarsgaard) who is roughly about 15 years senior to her. David seems quite harmless  and suave at first. He is a Jewish  by the way. David takes Jenny to  art auctions and concerts.  As to Jenny, she barely know any background of David. And David, who pretends to bea lover of fine music and art, and a breaker of rules, which could be seen as an incentive to seduce naive schoolgirls. 

The smooth-talking David persuade Jenny’s parents with ease and  he spirits her away to weekends in Oxford and Paris with his buddy Danny (Dominic Cooper) and Danny’s girlfriend Helen (Rosamund Pike.  Danny and Helen live in a high-end London apartment and buy pre-Raphaelite paintings at auction…. BTW, Jenny has a loving, conservative and shortsighted Father named Jack. 

Altogether, this film can be treated as  a cautionary tales of a naive school girl seduced by a smooth-talking rake.

God knows the motives of our prayers. “You ask and not receive, because you ask with wrong motives” (James 4: 3). Life challenges might be blessings in disguise, because “God only disciplines the one He loves” (Hebrews 12:4-11 NIV). It takes time to figure out the blessings in life. Those who have been “given much, much will be demanded” (Luke 12; 47–48). 手機板建議「利用目錄或關鍵字搜尋主題」或留言發問。初衷是成立一個兼具療癒性及知識性的平台,囊括中英文稿。支持網站最好的方式,是幫忙把文章分享出去。世界太多聲音,太容易迷失,所以互相督促!學問和人際關係,都最怕道聽塗說和一知半解。 理財,從照顧好自己的健康開始!中醫「肝開竅於目、心開竅於舌、脾開竅於唇、肺開竅於鼻、腎開竅於耳」。研究證實好壞情緒會關鍵性決定身體的發炎指數和血糖指數!容易緊繃焦慮不安或睡不好,多補充維生素B和鈣的食物(補給品不建議天天吃,建議攝取天然的食物)。術前或牙科看診前多補充鈣,因為鈣是解痛劑。術後或身體發炎期間或痘痘,多補充E,主修復,可以大大降低留疤機率! 根據營養學,害喜是因為缺乏B6,而攝取含維生素E的食物可避免baby有黃疸的情況。生產前多補充鈣質和維生素D的食物可以有效降低生產的疼痛。 母體缺乏維生素E,是造成早產的常見主因之一。攝取充足維生素E,可望終止慣性流產。 據國外研究,治療阿茲海默症(失智症),戒糖痊癒機率高!胃食道逆流,建議選擇鹼性飲食,忌過食!便秘,建議攝取水溶性纖維的蔬菜!還有,身體缺少油脂,便缺少潤滑劑,無法順利排便。肩頸痛、背痛建議按壓手背指間的穴道,效果立見!脖子控管甲狀腺和自律神經,甲狀腺控管體溫,所以手腳冰冷或自律神經失調或久坐族群,都應該經常按壓手背食指和中指之間的穴道,非常有效。嘉義,不容錯過的景點《鰲鼓濕地》、《幸福山丘》、《傲慢烘培坊》。醫學書籍推薦《求醫不如求己》及《向癒》。盼你我都能抵達想去的地方,想著別人的好,卻是最先溫暖了自己。最近很想找好喝的擂茶。合作邀約jpsiawase@gmail.com
