A SPECIAL viewing of a BAFTA nominated film will be shown for one day only at Weston Odeon.

An Education (12A) was officially released in 2008 but has since received late, but phenomenal reviews, which is why cinema bosses are bringing it back for a one-off viewing.

The film is based on an autobiographical memoir of the same title written by the British journalist Lynn Barber.

Set in the early 1960s the story centres on a 16-year-old girl, Jenny Mellor, who lives with her parents in a London suburb.

On her father's wishes, everything that she does is in the sole pursuit of being accepted into Oxford, as he wants her to have a better life than him.

Her life soon changes after she meets David Goldman, a man more than twice her age and before long she becomes romantically involved with him.

Will Jenny's father agree to the engagement and will she stay in school?

Catch the flick at 1.45pm, 6.10pm and 8.15pm on February 4.
