Movie Tip #4 - Atonement

Director: Joe Wright

Starring: James McAvoy, Keira Knightley, Romola Garai, Saoirse Ronan, Brenda Blethyn, Vanessa Redgrave,Benedict Cumberbatch, Juno Temple

Description: The young Briony Tallis has a wild imagination. Because of a lie she breaks up her sister Cecelia (Keira Knightley) and her lover Robbie (James McAvoy). A lie that will change all of their lives....

Review: I read the book a while ago and I immediately loved the story. The characters are perfectly played by the actors and the story is extremely close to the original. The three chapters in the book (young Briony, 18 year old Briony and older Briony) were pictured the way it was supposed to. Not complicated, perfectly directed by Joe Wright. People who like a lot of action won't like this film, because it's not a blockbuster movie. But if you like the book, you will love the film. They're equally good.
