Review: Atonement

While technically not a costume drama (1940’s though, close enough), it does have the same feeling to it. Usually, that genre doesn’t fare well with me, but this movie did a decent job not to repel me from the get go. That doesn’t mean it sits totally comfortably though, mostly pacing and not enough story (for the current two full hours running time, that is) are the downsides for this movie. Also, a lot of this true love feeling you’ll have to take for granted, never revealing any backstory on Keira Knightley and James McAvoy characters, and why they belong together.
Taking it for granted might have something to do with the narrative though, which has some nice twists too it, but as a whole movie, it fails to live up to its rave critic and user reviews.7-.
