Off I escaped for a showing of Atonement at the cheap price theater. A deep story to be certain! I think it is one of those movies that will creep into your thoughts for days to come when you least expect it. I love any movie with period scenes and costumes. This film has that quality and romance and tragedy. If you've seen it too, let me know what you thought. There was a girl sitting with another girl in front of me in the theater. When the lights came up she stood up and loudly unannounced, "Well those were 2 hours of my life I'll never get back. They're gone!" Some people should just stay home, don't you agree??!!
