This 2009 movie based on the memoir of Lynn Barber is a delight to watch. As a young schoolgirl the intelligent and pretty Lynn (“Jenny” in the movie) has an affair with a much older man who seduces her with a life of excitement and the exotic. The dullness of early 60’s Britain is beautifuly evoked (“Sometimes I tihnk the whole country is bored.”) The acting from the little-known cast is excellent. Alfred Molina in particular is brilliant as the loving, overbearing and misguided father and Peter Sarsgaard is a great example of finely crafted acting as the charmer David. The script by Nick Hornby sparkles with intelligence and wit. The film is only let down by a weak ending, but is still well worth watching.
