I still havent seen the Atonement film, but just finished the book last night. I didnt really like it at the beginning - thought Briony was such a pain in the a*se (to put it eloquently :o0 ) - but then Igot really into it. Is the movie worth seeing? Or is it another case of the film ruining the book??

I read the book a few years back and saw the movie when it came out. It was actually good, really well made. I loved the first section, it was really well done and quite suspenseful and evocative. I thought Kiera Knightley would be atrocious - not her biggest fan >:o) - but she was good. The girl that played the your Briony Saoirse Ronan is Irish, and a great young talent. She's also going to be in Peter Jacksons adaptation of the lovely bones!!

Love the book, I love all Ian McEwan. But I just couldn't stick seeing another film with Keira Knightley and her big horsey jaw one expression face.

Know what you mean about Knightly normally I won't go to see something if she's in it, but as incredible as it may sound she's convincing in it, and it pains me to say that. Also she wears the most amazing dress I've seen in a movie in years!

It's not due to be released until 2009!! http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0380510/
