The hottest day of the summer of 1935. Thirteen year-old Briony Tallis (Saoirse Ronan) sees her older sister Cecilia (Keira Knightley) strip off her clothes and plunge into the fountain in the garden of their country house. Watching Cecilia is their housekeeper’s son Robbie Turner (James McAvoy), a childhood friend who, along with Briony's sister, has recently graduated from Cambridge.

Atonement looked and felt a lot like Pride and Prejudice, impeccable setting, acting and dialogue. Come to think of it, both movies have the same director, leading lady, both are based on books and both take place in England...
