 Our book to screen series continue with Atonement, based on Ian McEwan’s best seller novel by the same name. Atonement is a beautiful and sensitive adaptation of the novel and achieved critical and commercial success at its release in 2007. The story is narrated by Briony Tallis, an author in search of atonement for an act she committed as a young girl. In the summer of 1935, significant events unfold in the mansion of a wealthy British family.
