Washington, Feb 13 (ANI): Peter Sarsgaard, Carey Mulligan, Alfred Molina and Emma Thompson have signed on star in the drama “An Education.”
The pic has been adapted from a memoir by Lynn Barber by Nick Hornby.
The movie will tell the story of a 17-year-old girl, to be played by Mulligan, whose life in the quiet London suburbs is turned upside down when she meets a 35-year-old sportscar-driving Brit, to be played by Peter Sarsgaard.
Set in the time when the swinging ’60s culture was emerging, the movie shows how he courts her with chic dinners, clubs and foreign trips, charming her father (Molina) but putting her future at Oxford University in jeopardy.
Thompson plays the disapproving headmistress of her school, reports the Hollywood Reporter.
Finola Dwyer and Amanda Posey are producing. Endgame CEO James D. Stern, Wendy Japhet, Douglas E. Hansen and BBC Films’ David M. Thompson are executive producing.
Principal photography is set to begin in late March in London with Endgame Entertainment and BBC Films financing the film. (ANI)
