* UnfortunateImplications: AllJewsAreCheapskates, anyone? Also, see below.
** Screenwriter Nick Hornby is aware of the accusations of ant-Semitism. He has said the only reason its in the movie is because its historically accurate to the time period and true to the actual events which inspired the film.

Added DiffLines:

* MoralEventHorizon: [[spoiler:David runs out on Jenny after she discovers he's married instead of helping her face her parents and telling them the truth of his deceit. To make matters worse, Jenny is unable to return to her school (and therefore cannot get into Oxford), and has basically lost almost everything because of David--or rather, because of herself.]]

** The whole notion of teenage sexual activity being grounds for expulsion [[spoiler: or refusal of re-admission]] from school. Nowadays, not only has teenage sexual experimentation become the norm, but even those who are not a fan of it would generally agree that part of a student's life is not the school's business.

** Also, marriage at 17 being seen as normal and desirable. Not as stark as the other examples, but the idea of girls marrying right out of high school ''has'' become a lot less common in the ensuing decades. It is part of the reason that what happened to Jenny doesn't happen as much anymore; today, parents like hers would put a quick stop to any notions an intelligent, academic girl like Jenny had of choosing marriage over Oxford. Back then, though, more women did choose early marriage over higher education so it was seen as a viable option, [[spoiler: especially to a man like David who is already rich and "established."]]
