one of my favorite shots of carey mulligan in an education (2009).

this movie has everything. fantastic acting, sixties style, and, most importantly, real meaning and relevance. not to mention the understated but perfect cinematography.

“he looked haggard and careworn, like a borgia who has suddenly remembered that he has forgotten to shove cyanide in the consomme, and the dinner-gong due any moment.”

– one of the best descriptions i’ve ever read, plus it references the borgia family. only p.g. wodehouse could have wrought such brilliance.
