New Release: An Education DVD and Blu-ray

An Education movie scene with Rosamund Pike and Carey MulliganNominated for three Academy Awards, An Education was released on DVD and Blu-ray on March 30, 2010, by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

The movie, which grossed $9.6 million in a limited run in theaters, is a coming-of-age story set in 1960s suburban London. Carey Mulligan (The Greatest) stars as a teen who gets involved with a man twice her age (Peter Sarsgaard, Knight and Day). Olivia Williams (The Ghost Writer), Alfred Molina (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice) and Rosamund Pike (Made in Dagenham) also are in the cast.

An Education was nominated for Oscars in Best Adapted Screenplay (Nick Hornby, About a Boy), Best Actress (Mulligan) and Best Picture, but didn’t take home any statues. Mulligan’s performance did, however, win a Best Leading Actress BAFTA award (the British equivalent of the Oscars), while the film was nominated for seven more.

The film is based on the memoir by Lynn Barber.

Sony priced the DVD at $28.96 and Blu-ray $38.96. Both include these special features:

  • deleted scenes
  • making-of featurette
  • featurette “Walking the Red Carpet”
  • commentary with director Lone Scherfig (Just Like Home), Mulligan and Sarsgaard.
