I love them both to bits even though they couldn't be farther apart in extremes of cinematography. I watched them both on the way to Cali in Feb and on the way back from Nevada in April and promised myself that as soon as they hit the shelves I'd buy them.
Well Atonement never materialised on my shopping list (nor budget come to think. Talking of shopping budgets I can't believe I have just paid £1.33 for a loaf of bread. A litre of diesel costs the same. At this rate we are going to have to walk everywhere and then not be able to afford to eat after all that exercise. Therefore we are all going to die. By December with my reckoning).
Where was I?
I skipped the film on my budget because I weighed up my emotional stability over the two films.Mainly because of the fact that James Macavoy dies in it. The film touched me so much that I think about the tragedy of it all like, a lot. James has come such a long way since Shameless, hasn't he? I only learned recently that he married his on screen girlfriend (Fiona - Anne Marie Duffy).
He clearly hasn't met me yet. You have to admit he is a little bit dishy.
Atonement is right up there with Walk the Line in my all time favvo movies. I might go and buy the movie this weekend but save it for one of those nights when only a "weepy" will do. It will obviously replace our food shopping budget for next week but seeing as we are all going to die by December... does it matter?
Juno on the other hand is such a super uplifting film. I love the dark comedy and Juno's quips. Its a such a fun movie that I know I will never tire of. How she kept her face straight whilst pratting about in the film is a mystery. If you have not seen it, please try and weigh up the costs of buying it in favour of feeding your family over the next few weeks. The overall factor of family fun will douse the hunger pangs and you can go to your grave (in December) a cultured member of the world of Hollywood.
