I watched the film of Atonement on DVD tonight and it was one of the best films I've watched in a long-time. The story itself is gripping with main twists and turns along with an unexpected ending. The cinematography were outstanding especially the re-enactment of the Dunkirk evacuation. The transition of the character Bryony Tallis through three stages of her life (the three actresses that played her including Vanessa Redgrave were quite brilliant) along with her atonement for the dreadful mistake she made in the first place was gripping. Definitely recommended to watch, it's not the most straightforward film but it’s certainly deserving of an Oscar.
