The Education of Charlie Banks is a coming of age tale that spans from the playgrounds of lower Manhattan to the idyllic greens of a fictional liberal arts college in upstate New York. Set during the eighties, it is a story about change, inevitability, and ultimately, about facing one's fears.Written by
After Charlie finds out that Mick beat up Leo, he goes to search for Mary. When she doesn't answer her dorm room door, we see him run into a white building. The camera dollies in towards the entrance and at the bottom of the frame you can clearly see the dolly track laid out. See more »
I always thought that night at the marina was truly Mick's graduation ceremony, where he showed mercy for the first and maybe the only time in his life.

This is a touching story filled with breakout performances. Jason Ritter hit it out of the park and so did Jesse Eisenberg. Most of the film is set in the 80s, and the style of cinematography brings you right into the East Village 25 years ago. Nearly every character was captivating, including Ritter, Eisenberg and hilarious Sebastian Stan. The plot is rich...even the music was first class. If I had to say one bad thing about the film I would have a hard time. I caught it in NY on Saturday night and anyone who has seen it knows that these films are few and far between. The audience applauded well into the credits. I am bringing my girlfriend back to see it tomorrow or Wednesday.
