Book-to-Movie Review: Atonement
S and I went to see Atonement last night, based on the Ian McEwan book of the same name. It was both beautifully depressing and depressingly beautiful. James McAvoy and Keira Knightely's performances were amazing, as well as Saoirse Ronan's performance as the younger Briony. Everything came together to make an astonishing movie; the cinematography, the score, the scenery, the performances, the direction... the movie deserved every award nomination that it received. Worth watching when it comes out on DVD (March 18, for those interested).
