Love, Guilt, and Gorgeous Garments

Passionate romance, tragic war, and really pretty clothes are all part of the oscar-nominated film Atonement. After weeks of wanting to see this movie (and being unable to persuade my fiance to join me), I finally went and was not disappointed.

Beautiful to watch, this movie makes up for its lack of cheer with a captivating story. The beginning scenes show the world through the eyes of an imaginitive and intelligent thirteen-year-old girl and then show the reality of the situation. The film also cleverly conveys how little events like the dropping of a hairclip can lead to an altered life. All three main actors, Keira Knightley, Saoirse Ronan, and James McAvoy performed their roles flawlessly. I would even see it a second time. For me, the clothes alone would be worth it.
