Atonement posters

Atonement While patrolling the uppity halls of the Toronto International Film Festival, Comingsoon.net managed to capture spy shots of three character posters for the Keira Knightley starring drama ATONEMENT, director Joe Wright's follow-up to his highly acclaimed (and also Keira Knightley starring) PRIDE AND PREJUDICE. Based on the Ian McEwan novel of the same name, the film follows a World War II era young girl and aspiring writer who falsely accuses her sister's (Knightley) lover (James McAvoy) of committing an unspeakable crime that haunts her for the rest of her life. The film has been garnering incredibly high praise from most critics at festivals in which it's been featured, with most going so far as to say they expect it to be a serious Oscar contender. Check out the rest of the posters over HERE. The film has been out in the UK since September 7th and makes its US bow December 7th.

Extra Tidbit: Wright had initially wanted Knightley to play the 18 year old Briony (played by Romola Garai) but she opted to play Briony's older sister Cecilia instead.
