Last night my husband and I and our son went to the movies. I made the suggestion to go to”Atonement” since I heard great raves. Ten minutes into the movie, I leaned over to my husband and said “this is definitely a Rose and David movie”. Rose is my sister and David her husband. They have travelled the world and are both teachers and my sister an artist. They read all the time. They are very well versed and love intelligent movies. I on the other hand am a “27 Dresses”, “American Pie” type movie buff. If the movie critics give the movie a 4 star I know to stay away because I probably won’t get it. I love romance and romantic comedies. “The Notebook”, “You’ve got Mail”, “Sleepless in Seattle”. I can understand these movies. But after ten minutes I really got into the movie. “Atonement” is a beautiful but tragic love story. The cinematography was beautiful. The lighting is amazing. If you haven’t seen it yet, don’t wait for the DVD. This is one movie you want to see on the big screen.
