Atonement

Visually but not Emotionally Stirring

It may have some lush visuals, but this cold, poorly structured wannabe epic rarely elicits anything more than tepid admiration for its characters. And the time-toggling flashbacks feel gimmicky rather than purposeful. Like 1996’s “The English Patient” its Oscar nom is befuddling.

Grade: C
Rated R
