Or, Go Easy On The Guilt And The Atonement

"'d be forgiven for thinking me mad - the way I acted this afternoon. The truth is, I feel rather light-headed and foolish in your presence, Cee, and I don't think I can blame the heat. Will you forgive me?" This was the main body of the letter Robbie had intended to put in the envelope to be handed to Cee, or Cecilia. But, in a hurry to get dressed and reach the venue of the party at the Tallis Estate, he inserts a different sheet of paper instead. That day turns out to be quite eventful for him. For the first time, Robbie and Cecilia acknowledge their love for each other. And within the next few hours, Robbie is sent to prison for a crime that he did not commit, on the strength of evidence given by a 13-year-old girl, the girl who had once upon a time harbored a crush on him. I am recounting here the story of the 2007 movie, "Atonement", based on the novel by Ian McEwan.
