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.
Carey Mulligan mentioned in an interview at the Sundance Film Festival that some of the most enjoyable moments of filming were when there were actors who only came in for a day or so, like Sally Hawkins and Emma Thompson, and she particularly enjoyed the four scenes she shot with the latter, whom she described as being "amazing", and called her acting "brilliant".
Come on, girls. Anybody?

Jenny: Isn't it because Mr. Rochester's blind?

In the scene where David and Jenny are driving to meet the black family modern cars are visible in the background.
