This movie has my immediate attention the moment I saw the trailer. It has everything I ever want in a movie:

- Keira Knightley
- James McAvoy: I like his performance in Becoming Jane.
- Classic style and interior
- Based on a bestselling book by Ian McEwan
- Great crew: directors of Pride and Prejudice
- Excellent reviews

It began screening in Venice Film Festival, and everywhere in UK last September, and now in Jiffest (which I missed). But why isn't it on DVD in Amazon.com yet? Grrr! I haven't even seen the movie yet, and I've bought the book (haven't read it yet), but the premise of it is so captivating.

I will definitely watch the movie. Call me a freak but I will watch this movie.

No two-hour film could ever capture all the riches of McEwan's masterly novel. But Wright and Hampton's Atonement comes tantalizingly close, while adding sensual delights all its own.

Atonement is everything a true lover of literature and movies could possibly hope for. It is unquestionably, without any reservations, my favorite film of the year.
