Atonement


One of the movies that kept me company during my week-long strep recovery was Atonement. I have heard varied opinions about this movie, but I am one who absolutely loved it. It was dark and dramatic at times, yet also (somewhat) hopeful as well. I don't want to give away to much of the story if you haven't seen it, but I definitely recommend it. If you're in the mood to see some great wardrobe and styling, hear some dreamy accents, and watch a captivatingly heart wrenching story unfold, this is the movie for you!

If you have seen Atonement, what did you think? I honestly don't care for Kiera Knightley very much, but I adore World War II era movies and for some reason she's usually cast in them.. But anyway, I just had to share these beautiful stills from the movie. Enjoy!

I actually liked the movie, though you're right, it is dark. I also read the book before I saw the movie so that might have made it more interesting. I might have to watch it again now!
Hope you're feeling better!

I have to agree with you, I'm not nuts about Keira Knightley, but I too love WWII movies and this one was indeed excellent. I read the book as well, and except for the ending it really kept the story well! It's a great and emotional film!
