Atonement

atonementpic12

 

'Like Ian McEwan, albeit with a vastly different artistic grammar, Wright casts a spell every bit as captivating as Briony's tangled web. It's fitting, somehow, that a novel so devoted to the precision and passionate love of language should be captured in a film that is almost too exquisite for words.'

Ann Hornaday,
Washington Post
