I remember years ago when Atonement was the book to read - I always avoided it, as I normally hate books that everyone raves about. Now I wish I'd been more suggestible.
You see, Thang and I went to see the new film of Atonement, and it was one of the most exquisite films I've seen in a very long time. A complex and morally challenging story, it must have been devilishly difficult to turn into a screenplay. But it's been done, and in the process a masterpiece has been created.
All of the acting is exceptional, and Keira Knightley is a revelation - impossibly beautiful, she has such an exceptional screen presence that I want to go out and see everything she's ever done.
Do yourself a favour - this will be the best film you've seen all year, and there's not much of the year left to go!
