John & Becky’s Movie Review of Atonement

AtonementBecky and I went to see a sneak preview of Atonement at the Esquire theater in Denver last week. The Yahoo website at Atonement describes the movie as follows:

“In 1935, 13-year-old fledgling writer Briony Tallis (Saoirse Ronan) and her family live a life of wealth and privilege in their enormous mansion. On the warmest day of the year, the country estate takes on an unsettling hothouse atmosphere, stoking Briony’s vivid imagination. Robbie Turner (James McAvoy), the educated son of the family’s housekeeper, carries a torch for Briony’s headstrong older sister…”

The Review
Atonement is a great classic movie with fantastic acting, plenty of emotion and a very interesting story. This movie will drain you emotionally, which is what it’s intended to do, but it will totally suck you in and it’s worth the emotional drain. Atonement is easily one of the best films of the year.

It’s very well done and has a strong message on how the choices we make can lead to disaster and regret. Some things in life that are done cannot be undone. The settings and the situations that transpire are really tragic that will make you appreciate that you didn’t have to go through a World War. It’s just a really good film for a change. With all the terrible movies that Hollywood put out this past year, this is getting our vote as possibly the best movie of the year.
