Ok so you may not know that I love almost everything British. In this case time periods of pre/post war Britain, country Manor life, upstairs/downstairs and the rich that always seem to be wasting time talking about proper tea etiquette.
K knows how much I love the time period and culture and so she rented the movie Atonement.
I will say that it was completely engulfed in the lifestyle. The story traced along themes of love, misunderstanding and jealousy that tear people apart and a woman’s effort to make things right.
Very sad. Incredible visuals. And in the end, Atonement. Reconcilliation. Redemption. Seems appropriate that is was up for Best Picture.
This movie reminded me of: Enemy at the Gates, Gosford Park, Never Let me Go, Great Expectations, Cold Mountain, Empire of the Sun, and Saving Private Ryan.
