Atonement (2007)


Superb performances by all 3 people playing the writer girl, my favorite being the youngest, which happens to be among the best child performances I've ever seen. One other nice performance is the young girl who eventually gets raped. I like the rather lame use of type-writer sounds during certain sequences; I also like the expansive sets showing bombed (World War II) areas as well as the military camp (that wasn't cheap). Otherwise the main story (a man gets falsely-accused of rape) is boring and often full of sentimentality, and I enjoyed none of the other performances.
