An adaptation of the Ian McEwan novel about the catastrophic fallout from a child's rebuffed crush, Atonement should confirm Joe Wright—along with most of his production team from Pride & Prejudice—as a master of period film. Impeccable design, perfect casting, sound that takes the clack of a typewriter and embeds it into all sorts of furious onscreen rhythms... I was swooning even before the love story kicked in. Admittedly, Keira Knightley and James McAvoy are pretty dreamy, too. (See Movie Times for details.)

This movie was so beautifully filmed, superbly acted, and horribly tragic. What more could a person want in a film?
