INTERVIEW: Director Joe Wright on ‘Atonement’

 

Two years ago, director Joe Wright garnered a bit of attention for his 2005 adaptation of Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice, but that now seems fairly miniscule to the scrutiny that's been put on his every move since it was announced that he would direct Christopher (Dangerous Liaisons) Hampton's adaptation of Ian McEwan's Atonement, a gripping hard-to-label story about a mistake in judgment made by a young girl named Briony Talis that stays with her for her entire life. It stars James McAvoy and Keira Knightley as young lovers who are split apart by Briony's decision while they're all very young, sending McAvoy's character Robbie to the French front during WWII, though it takes a different approach to the normal war-time romantic drama we've seen before.
