A film adaptation of one of my favorite books, “Atonement,” is opening this week. This book – I read in one day, in one sitting, because I could not put this down. That very rarely happens to me, but this grabbed me from page one and pulled me into an emotional journey that ended with a huge cry. And – in case you don’t know me well – I am so not a crier.
I read that the original adaptation of the book into a screenplay departed from the book in a huge way, in order to get to the screenplay structure. And then, it was rewritten to be more in line with the original book.
All I can say is – read this book. Before you go to the film.
I plan to see the film too.
