This weekend I watched An Education. This weekend I fell in love with An Education. And most importantly, this weekend I found in the movie's one minute montage the best representation of Paris I have ever seen.
I am a true romantic when it comes to Paris. I believe everything is more beautiful there. Everything has emotion. The light. The buildings. The city has its own mood. I love all the good and the bad that comes along with this city. The good because, well, if it's good in Paris, it's probably the best in the world. The bad because it's never really that bad if it's in Paris. Of all the things my future holds, I most look forward to visiting Paris with my guy. And we are going to get all dolled up, and run around looking at the beautiful things, drink lots of wine, laugh, and be in love in Paris. There. Is that cheesy enough for all of you?
...and so you can see it for yourself, here is the scene, set to Juliette Greco's "Sur les quais du vieux Paris." (really begins at 0:15 second mark)
Get the look.

And on a final note, did you all know that the now wildly famous and talented Carey Mulligan was Kitty Bennett in the 2005 Pride and Prejudice?? Crazy! That's two movies with costar Rosamund Pike (Jane in P&P).
Have you seen the movie? Did you love it? Have you been to Paris? Are you as wildly obsessed as I am?
