AN EDUCATION: It's 1961 and attractive, bright 16-year-old schoolgirl, Jenny (Corey Mulligan) is poised on the brink of womanhood. Stifled by the tedium of adolescent routine, Jenny can't wait for adult life to begin. One rainy day, her suburban life is upended by the arrival of an unsuitable suitor, 30-ish David (Peter Sorsgaard). To Jenny's frank amazement, he manages to charm her conservative parents Jack (Alfred Molina) and Marjorie (Cara Seymour), and effortlessly overcomes any objections to their daughter's older suitor. Very quickly, David introduces Jenny to a glittering new world of classical concerts and late-night suppers with his attractive friend and business partner, Danny (Dominic Cooper) and Danny's girlfriend, the beautiful but vacuous Helen (Rosamund Pike). Just as the family's long-held dream of getting their brilliant daughter into Oxford seems within reach, Jenny is tempted by a more exciting life. Will David be the making of Jenny or her undoing?
LIKE CRAZY: Like Crazy beautifully illustrates how your first real love is as thrilling and blissful as it is fragile.

"Crazily inventive and totally irresistible," Peter Travers, Rolling Stone. Like Crazy explores how a couple faces the real challenges of being together and of being apart.

FORCES OF NATURE: It's only two days before his wedding when Ben's (Ben Affleck) plane skids out of control, leaving him stranded in New York with no way home to his nervous fiance in Savannah.
