#37 Atonement

November 2nd, 2021

In this episode, the film in question is the 2007 release “Atonement”. The reviewers lined up to give their insight into the ins and outs of the picture are of course Callum and Marcus. A truly influential modern classic lent itself perfectly to the prying filmic minds of The Glacé Film Club members.

The period drama follows the lives of two young lovers throughout the second world war as their relationship is torn from them years earlier as a result of lead character, Robbie’s, wrongful imprisonment. From what initially seems like a straightforward period drama, emerges a film that explores much much more than love and war.

Were The Glacé Film Club duo up to the task of dismantling this film and piecing it back together? Let’s find out.
