Charlotte's Film Club: Atonement

We're getting closer to Valentines day which can mean only one thing! That's right, a week of Film Club themes devoted to the theme of 'Love'. Charlotte's first pick for this week is "Atonement" from 2007.

Based on the book by Ian McEwan, this English drama follows the lives of young lovers Cecilia Tallis (Keira Knightley) and Robbie Turner (James McAvoy). When the couple are torn apart by a lie constructed by Cecilia's jealous younger sister, Briony (Saoirse Ronan), all three of them must deal with the consequences. Robbie is the hardest hit, since Briony's deception results in his imprisonment, but hope increases when their paths cross during World War II.
