NEW YORK, Feb. 12 (UPI) -- Peter Sarsgaard, Alfred Molina and Emma Thompson have joined the cast of "An Education," a film written by British author Nick Hornby and set in 1960s London.

Hornby also penned the novels "Fever Pitch," "About a Boy" and "High Fidelity," all of which were turned into successful films.

The Hollywood Reporter described "An Education" as a coming-of-age drama based on journalist Lynn Barber's memoir and starring Carey Mulligan as an Oxford-bound, suburban teen whose life is turned upside down against the backdrop of the "swinging 1960s culture."

Shooting is slated to begin late next month in London, the trade paper said.
