PG-13 | | Drama
A coming-of-age story about a teenage girl in 1960s suburban London, and how her life changes with the arrival of a playboy nearly twice her age.
The character of Helen is often made fun of for being dumb, but Rosamund Pike, who played her, actually read English at Oxford University - the same subject and university choice of Jenny Mellor.
Come on, girls. Anybody?
Miss Stubbs: Anybody else?
Miss Stubbs: Jenny again.
Jenny: Isn't it because Mr. Rochester's blind?
Miss Stubbs: Yes, Jenny.
In an early scene in which David and Jenny are having a conversation in his car, the lock on the car window behind Peter Sarsgaard keeps changing position.
