A story of a sixteen year old Jenny Mellor(Carey Mulligan) in the 1960's living with her parents in the London suburb. But, her life changes when a playboy nearly twice her age arrives.

It was a good film. About choosing education and how sometimes a whimsy romantic love can detour a girl. But, good thing she was able to uphold herself and was given a second chance to do it all over again. Some sort of a coming of age film. This film explores issues such as social class, education, racism, being a woman and more.
