An Education (review soon! like tomorrow) made me think back to high school and although no older man would want to seduce me in those days (I defined awkward) I got a lot of Jenny's pretentiousness in the film. I was never as clever as her, but I had a lot of pretentious interests. Well, let me rephrase that, I was interested in a lot things for pretentious reasons. Most of those things today- music, film, art, literature- I still love, but view them differently, I think that the greatest art works are great because they reflect something universal about mankind. Not just something that pretentious 16 year olds can pretend to "get" in order to look slash more importantly feel smart. Anyways, all of that mumbo-jumble was an excuse to post this poem I loved when I was 17. A poem, which after revisiting, I still love.
Finally going to go see An Education tonight. So excited. Especially since I will be using buy one get one student ticket deal. So if all goes to plan my friend and I will be spending a mere three pounds to get in!! Will post a review of that and Fantastic Mr. Fox (which I saw Saturday) sooon!
