MOVIE REVIEW-Atonement

This film may be well-acted, but it is very UNPLEASANT.

LOTS OF GORE, AND WAR, AND STUPID POST-VICTORIAN MORALS.

It is long, and nasty, and has few nice moments. Our hero was caught scr*wing

an older sister, by the younger sister, who then  may or may not have faked

having sex with the man, causing him to be arrested (where were the lawyers?)

for underage sex. He then accepted a deal to go in the Brit. army in lieu of staying in jail,

(bad choice). Much of the film is about Dunkirk and much misery. I walked out.

It was NOT FUN.  Arms and legs getting chopped off, etc.

DO NOT SEE IT.  Unless you are atoning for some sin.
