An Education: Not your father's Lolita

She's 16. He's 36 — give or take.
She's in high school. He's a man of a glam and shady world.
Sound familiar?
This girl-meets-older-guy flick defies the stereotype. Set in London, circa 1962, Jenny (Carey Mulligan) is no victim of David's (Peter's Sarsgaard) advances.
It may not be PC, but there's truth on the screen and super actors.
