ATONEMENT has quite rightly been widely acclaimed and seems set to claim the prizes when this year's awards are handed out.

It is a remarkable piece of work from director Joe Wright, who has managed to take Ian McEwan's novel and make it into a riveting and emotional piece of cinema.

He has been helped, too, by the brilliant acting of Keira Knightley and the always impressive James McAvoy in the leading roles.

And there is, too, a remarkable piece of acting from Irish schoolgirl Saoirse Ronan, playing the key role in a story which begins on a hot summer day in 1935 where events will change the lives of those involved.
