Venice begins in less than four weeks and today I saw the opening movie, Atonement, director Joe Wright's follow up to Pride & Prejudice, based on the novel by Ian McEwan. I'll write about the film in detail at a later date, but if the rest of this year's selection is as good as James McAvoy's performance is in this, then it should be a vintage year. There's an amazingly length Steadicam shot in it too that will have your jaw hitting the floor. Wright really is one of British cinema's brightest new talents.
