Jenny Mellor (Carey Mulligan) is a gifted, middle-class British teen whose parents escaped from poverty through hard work and determination.  TheMellorswant their daughter's life to be much easier, and so they began prepping Jenny from an early age to attend Oxford, ensuring that she mastered the Cello and Latin.

A wealthy boy almost twice Jenny's age named David (Peter Sarsgaard)charms both the teen and her parents, claiming that he was once an Oxford man himself.  The relationship seems picturesque at first, and Jenny eventually agrees to marry David -- despite a growing suspicion that he is a conman.
