Atonement. I eagerly awaited the release of this film, despite being somewhat annoyed by Keira Knightley. She was spectacular in Pride and Prejudice, but everything I’ve seen from her since is just the same bloody thing. Can she at least try kissing with her mouth closed once? So anyway back to the movie. I am a sucker for period dramas, and Atonment did not disappoint on this score. It was gorgeous and detailed. But that is as far as it went. Emotionally, it missed the mark. At least compared to Ian McEwan’s book, which was devastating. Get this movie if you want to see Keira in an incredible green dress. Otherwise, read the book.
