Atonement

Joined by love. Separated by fear. Saved by hope
  • Nice day for a dip....

This highly-regarded movie is an epic tale of love, set against a tragic mistake. The son of a housekeeper and the eldest daughter of the manor are attracted to each other. The younger sister, too young to understand, and also attracted to the man, lies about him, resulting in him going to jail. A few years later, World War II breaks out, and the man joins up. The two women are both nurses. The younger is desperate to undo the harm she did, while the two lovers have come to terms with never being able to marry.
