Atonement (2007)

Yes. I saw him. I saw him with my own eyes.

One of my all-time favorite movies!

A tragic love story set against the back drop of WWII that brings me to tears every time I watch it. This masterpiece was nominated for 7 Oscars, including “Best Picture” and ultimately won “Best Original Score.” Beautifully shot, superbly acted by James McAvoy, Keira Knightley, Saoirse Ronan, Juno Temple and Benedict Cumberbatch among others. This is a Romeo & Juliet-esque love story, but also a story about the “haves” and the “have-nots” with somewhat of a twist ending. This film wonderfully tells the story of how one lie can impact/destroy/alter the lives of many. But I don’t want to spoil anything…just watch it…but have a box of tissues nearby.
