The trailer for Lone Scherfig’s new film An Education starring Peter Sarsgaard, Alfred Molina, Emma Thompson, and featuring the next big name in Hollywood, Carey Mulligan, has just hit Yahoo! Movies.

This is one of those buzzed about films that you know you’re going to hear about come Oscar seasons. Everyone is calling Mulligan performance one of the best they’ve seen all year. She rumored to have a role in Oliver Stone‘s Wall Street remake with Shia LaBeouf, but even if that doesn’t happen, we’re sure to be hearing about more from her soon.

Check out the trailer below…

Synopsis: An Education, is a coming-of-age story about a teenage girl in 1960s suburban London, whose life is changed by the unexpected arrival of a playboy nearly twice her age.

The cast alone is enough to make me see this film, but the story also looks like it could be a lot of fun.

The film will be getting a limited releases on October 9th, and will hopefully build stem from there.

What do you think? Seen it before or will it surprise you?
