I didn't know about the book til I saw the film. If the book's only half as good as the film it should be worth reading though! And I'm not much of a hornby fan...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Oscar Worthy 18. Dezember 2009
Von Aer Aktis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Nick Hornby's adaptation of Lynn Barber's memoir is beautifully written, and I think it will probably win best adapted screenplay this year. This publication of the screenplay also includes two extra essays by Hornby about the making of the film, and showing it at Sundance which are welcome.

I wish though that we had gotten a slightly less polished draft. It fits so closely to what is in the actual movie that I have a feeling it was retrofitted a little for publication, which is nice for those who just want a transcription of the movie, but for those more interested in the transition from page to screen and the changes that need to be made it may be a little slight (the addition of an alternate ending notwithstanding). Still it is a masterful screenplay of one of the year's best movies.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Coming of Age Told Wonderfully 31. Dezember 2009
Von Lauren G - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Jenny wants to be anything but ordinary. In this coming-of-age story, she dreams of a world full of music and dance, while in reality she's stuck in 1960s suburban London. That is until David, an older man, walks into her life and takes her on a whirlwind of a journey, where she loses not just her innocence but a bit of herself at the same time. Hornby's script is excellent, truly showing a middle-class London from yesteryear and wonderfully drawn characters inhabiting the streets. The characters are vivid and interesting, always with a motive. And the diary, which is included with the script, offers an interesting inside look at not just the writing process, but the creation of the film.

4.0 von 5 Sternen "An Education" -- the Book not the Movie 1. Januar 2010
Von M. M. Hauenstein - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Nick Hornby wrote the screenplay for the movie and this is what is being sold on Amazon. The book by Lynn Barber is not being published in the U.S. until 2010. Both are titled "An Education." I heard an interview with Ms. Barber and she said there are differences between the screenplay and the book, although she approved the changes to make adjustments for the movie audience.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Action is Character 3. April 2013
Von william - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The picture on the back of Nick Hornby's An Education contextualizes the central fight, for me, of the screenplay. David, Jenny, and Jenny's parents are standing in their living room. David is looking at Jack with soft yet deliberate charm. Jack is looking at David with a father's evaluation. Jenny is looking at her father uncertain, but surprised, about what's happening. Jenny's mom is looking at David, smitten. Which man is the right man: David, with his savoir faire, or the sensible, fatherly, Jack?

David's character is understandably attractive to Jenny: he has a sports car, knows the best night clubs, goes to art auctions, takes trips to Paris, and uses charm instead of hesitation. Jenny's dad is, well, her dad.

David's image is largely from the trappings of wealth, and the screenplay lends itself to an argument about a man's character and the source of his money, but I don't think it's a good one. There're certainly ethical issues: some theft, and real estate deals taking advantage of buyers who don't know any better. But a person can make money in questionable ways and be tortured by it. David's not tortured, though he's not a villain, either.

Hornby based this screenplay off a short story memoir. It's invention on top on invention on top of a real story, then. Jack and David were deliberately created for the screen, and they seem to characterize William James's self esteem equation. James says a person's self esteem is accomplishments divided by pretenses. A person can increase her self esteem by increasing her accomplishments; though, he argues, it's easier to do so by decreasing pretension. David seems to have that ratio backward: his self esteem comes from pretense.

And that's probably because he doesn't care about anything. The only moments he seems to be a man are when he's walking up to a door to con somebody. It's an Instagram image: deriving character from the image of doing a thing, instead of doing something meaningful. David comes across mature when he gives off the image of doing work.

This is sharply contrasted by Jenny's father. He's dull, risk averse, and cares about his daughter. In some cases he comes across uncultured and suburban, but, more often, he comes across as a strong father. What's important, though, as in a lot of cases, is what's unseen. Jack was once young. Presumably he had the same self certainty that most young people do, and the interest and know how of city life that David does. Jack became Jack. It doesn't seem he was forced to. Growing, for him, was natural, and had a strong element of choice.

Much of this movie is built on conversations and how they take place. A person who can connect in conversation has a certain degree of substance. Jokes and charm can be distancing. At the end, David and Jack have to talk to Jenny. It's uncertain whether David lies to Jenny when he says he loves her and wants to divorce his wife. And there is indeed logic to waiting a day to talk to her parents. However, while doing so will let some air into the situation, it also puts immediate burden on Jenny, because she has no choice not to see her parents. It's a matter of character, then, to talk to them the same night. He has to, to save her.

A man gets only so many chances to prove his character. Eventually, he has to grow up.
