"Growing Up Education" is a very smooth movie, with details, light, shadow, music, characters, everything is smooth, elegant and light.

This is a movie based on the autobiography of a British media expert. In short, Loli fell in love with the uncle, and after the romance, she discovered the bleak truth of life. The uncle left in a hurry, and Loli eventually became a strong man.

Every girl will love this movie, especially thoughtful chicks. If the chick is more beautiful, it will be more likely to resonate. Furthermore, if this chick was caught in the trap of the uncle, it would be easier to have feelings for her. This is a kind of education. Together with family education and school education, it has contributed to the awakening of women's self-awareness. The adult uncle brought Lolita a space that already existed. Lolita just saw adult life in advance. Therefore, the paper tiger wearing a false halo is very easy to be pierced. After this battle, Lolita slowly changed. Become an invincible mature woman.

It should be said that this film did not vilify the old men with pinch points, they were just reminiscing about their youthful dreams, and even they would take care of Lolita. But their fatigue is unavoidable. When Loli saw the uncle's devastated courtyard, it felt like we accidentally saw the peacock's asshole after watching the opening screen at the zoo - that was the moment when the uncle helped Loli grow up. the heaviest blow.

British movies are so good, like Jane Austen's novels. Loli's clothes are very beautiful, with the shape of Audrey Hepburn. The scenery in the film is so similar to Dublin, it's like being around. All the actors are appropriate, and the details are meticulous. For example, the headmistress who did not make many appearances is Emma Thompson.

After reading it, I went to gossip and searched for the prototype of the heroine. The beautiful and beautiful Oxford student in the past has now become an old woman with sharp eyes. Gosh, it's time.

I even perused her memoirs. She ruthlessly described her former love, Simon: flat feet, long face, short stature...

and when they met again years later, Simon "sit in the hall, when he looked older, more tired, more tired than I remembered. Haggard. When he saw me, there was a light on his face, and then it went dark because I said, 'This is my boyfriend, Dick.'"

Although a little disappointed, Simon still said politely to the arrogant heroine: "Would you like to sit down and have dinner with me?" The heroine said rudely: "You pay?" So rude, let the new Boyfriend Dick was horrified. Simon silently took out a stack of checkbooks from his pocket, so the hostess nodded, and the three of them had dinner together.

Hey, I might as well not have seen this bridge.

    Straightforward to the point where people keep rolling their eyes, the creative idea is too clear to see, and it is almost necessary to add a long declaration of female awakening at the end of the film.

    The most extravagance is nothing but a gorgeous encounter at the age of dreaming. It's a pity that the cup is out. If life is not lucky enough to have a shortcut, you have to pay something. It is not a well-behaved, it can only be a price. // "The life I want, there's no shortcut." "I feel old, but not very wise."
