An Education

 (2009)

An Education Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Coming-of-age drama set in 1960s London, adapted for the screen from the memoirs of journalist Lynn Barber. Jenny is an intelligent young woman on the brink of her 17th birthday, living in the post-war, pre-Beatles London suburbs, who is destined for a promising if somewhat narrow future at Oxford University and beyond. Longing for romance and sophistication to inject some excitement into her humdrum schoolgirl existence, Jenny finds herself caught in a whirlwind romance with the mysterious and much older playboy David, which leaves her torn between studying for a place at Oxford, and the more exciting alternative offered to her by a charismatic older man.

An Education Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Sony Pictures Classics' latest Blu-ray release, An Education, features a good-but-not- great 1080p, 2.35:1-framed transfer that delivers a quality film-like appearance but is nevertheless not quite as stunning as the best Blu-ray releases. Amidst what is sometimes incredibly strong detailing, An Education features some excessively soft shots with faces in particular occasionally appearing undefined and pasty. Generally, An Education delivers something of a cold, sterile image that's defined by shades of gray and blue, and while there's certainly a fair amount of color in the image, nothing stands out as abundantly bright and cheery. Texturing on building fašades, pavement, school uniforms, and the like are nicely rendered with what is sometimes a "reach out and touch it" realism, but the image suffers a bit, in contrast, thanks to a somewhat flat appearance. Black levels, however, a rich and deep, but flesh tones can waver between anything from a bit on the pale side to showcasing a hint of red. The image is nothing if not consistent, remaining clear and stable throughout, the filmic quality reinforced by a moderately heavy layer of grain, but An Education just isn't the sort of film that's going to wow viewers, at least from a purely visual high definition perspective.


An Education Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

An Education boasts a reserved but nevertheless good-in-context DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. This is a fairly front-heavy presentation with only limited background ambience. Listeners won't often feel immersed into the various environments seen throughout the film, save for when there's sufficient sonic information to do so. A driving rainstorm early in the film delivers a quality presence across the front with a hint of back-channel support, but several booms of thunder nicely traverse the listening area for a full and engaging presentation that delivers everything but a dark cloud over the soundstage. Likewise, a night club scene later in the film positively places the listener in the midst of the crowd, with the deep, heavy, but clear accompanying percussion beats smoothly entering the listening area for a full and realistic effect. The track is exceptionally clear throughout, with nary a musical beat, sound effect, or syllable out of place. The film's light and sometimes playful score -- particularly as heard over the opening title sequence -- enjoys pinpoint clarity, and dialogue reproduction never misses a beat. Like the video presentation won't open any eyes, this soundtrack won't necessarily wow audiences in the same was as some big summer Action blockbusters might, but Sony has once again delivered a high quality listen that's perfectly suitable for the style of film it accompanies.
