Besides putting out solo albums (and, before that, records with his trio, Ben Folds Five), Ben Folds gets involved in all sorts of interesting and unusual collaborations.

Lone Scherfig's 'An Education' is certainly that for the film's central figure, Jenny (newcomer Carey Mulligan), a gifted student from the London suburb of Twickenham in 1961 who dreams of studying English at Oxford University.
