Joe Wright was apparently so impressed by Sir David Lean's epic work that he screened most of it before making Atonement, and then instructed cinematographer Seamus McGarvey also to watch Lean's oeuvre, with the hope of being able to match some of the director's power. Lean's widow Sandra Lean, however, felt she 'just didn't like the movie. I thought it was terrible and badly directed. Everyone goes on about the long shot of the beach at Dunkirk, but I thought it was boring and laborious. Obviously they were trying to get the feel of a David Lean epic but they failed. Without David, it's not so easy.' See more »

I was completely stunned when I watched Atonement yesterday. From the funny lines to the sad moments, this movie does not fail to amaze me. James McAvoy is by far the shining star in this movie, endowed with unfailing charisma and absolutely adoring accent. The score was impeccable, especially the sound of the typewriter. I loved the scenes from Dunkirk, the hospital, and ,of course, the mansion. It's truly an amazing movie that I consider to be the best of 2007's. The ending was rather sad, but it fits perfectly. Keira Knightley was ineffably wonderful with her charming beauty and brilliant performance. One should really go and watch it because it's a fulfilling experience. I personally give it 10/10.
