An Education was one of the best films I have seen in a long while and is the story of her early life. I doubt she would ever win the Piper award for Christian living (not when she tells you the number of people she slept with at Oxford which made me choke on my cornflakes it was so many!) but she is prepared to look the questions asked of her in the eye and answer them. As a journalist and possibly the greatest interviewer of her generation one might have expected as much.

How deeply refreshing.
