Carey Mulligan and Peter Sarsgaard at "An Education" premiere in New York, on 5th October 2009.
"Maggie Gyllenhaal swans into the New York Film Festival premiere of An Education held Monday at NYC’s Paris Theater wearing a strapless black pantsuit that shows off her toned shoulders.The towering, blue-eyed beauty pumps her fist, and gives a supportive “woo-hoo” to cheer on husband Peter Sarsgaard, who stars in the film as a 30-something man attempting to seduce a 16-year-old girl away from her education and into his glitzy world of classical concerts, art auctions and late-night dinners.“I’m extremely proud of him”, Maggie tells me.Alfred Molina, who plays the father, never saw Peter and Maggie’s three-year-old daughter Ramona on set, but calls the couple “very nice.”The actor also worked with Jake Gyllenhaal in the forthcoming Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. Of Reese Witherspoon and boyfriend Jake, he says, “They seemed very happy. They’re a very nice couple.”
Working with both Peter and Jake was “like a family affair”, he says.
And they’re off: Maggie joins Peter and the cast for dinner while the New York Film Festival crowd enjoys the film".
