Well I finished Atonement on the DAY OF ATONEMENT. Ha. Anyway, I watched the movie on the plane on the way back from Israel (how odd, an additional Jew/ Atonement connection), and I'm pretty sure I slept through parts of it because it did not make much sense, despite being very very pretty. In the end I rather liked it. It was very beautifully written, and I suppose I should stop seeing movies of books I want to read, because I feel like I would have been a little more open in reading had I not already KNOWN it all.

I also wonder if the plot and twist would have felt more contrived had I not seen the movie.
