* AdaptationDyeJob: Briony (played by the blonde Saoirse Ronan) is described as having dark hair in the book. Given that brunette Keira Knightley was the first choice (for the adult version anyway) but chose to play Cecilia, this is presumably to distinguish the sisters.



* ArtisticLicenseHistory: Both the novel and the film mentions the Balham station disaster (a German bomb was dropped on the road above the station - the tube platforms of which were being used as air-raid shelters - causing the northbound tunnel to partially collapse, flooding both platforms with water and earth from the ruptured water mains and sewers above), but both media get the date of the event wrong: the novel says it happened in September 1940 rather than October 1940, and the film says it happened on 15 October 1940, a day after it happened.

* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: Only at the start. Briony is the blonde and her sister Cecilia is the brunette. When cousin Lola arrives, that gives them a redhead too.



* BrotherSisterIncest: The actor playing Leon, Cecilia and Briony's brother, believed that Leon and Cecilia's relationship had elements of this; director Wright commented that he wasn't sure he agreed with him on that, and speculated it may have been because so many of Ian [=McEwan=]'s other novels have incest in them. Nonetheless there are a few moments in the film (and another in a deleted scene) that hint at this idea.
* ChekhovsGun: Robbie seen looking at a wound on his chest as he and his two men begin their march. [[spoiler: Foreshadowing the septicaemia that later kills him]].

He mistakes her for an English girl he met in his childhood, but [[LetThemDieHappy Briony plays along because she knows he's suffering]]. When he asks if she loves him, Briony says that she does (both the book and the movie makes it clear that Briony truly did, even if it was just for a few seconds). The soldier dies a minute later.

It was adapted into a 2007 [[TheFilmOfTheBook film]] of the same name, directed by Creator/JoeWright and based on a screenplay by Christopher Hampton. It was produced by Working Title Films and filmed throughout the summer of 2006 in England and France, starring Creator/JamesMcAvoy and Creator/KeiraKnightley. Distributed worldwide by Universal Studios, with minor releases through other divisions, it was released in the United Kingdom and Ireland on September 7, 2007, and in North America on December 7, 2007.

''Atonement'' opened the 64th Venice International Film Festival, making Wright, at the age of thirty-five, the youngest director ever to open the event. The film also opened the 2007 Vancouver International Film Festival.

The film won an Oscar for the Best Original Score at the 80th Academy Awards, and was nominated for six others, including Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress (SaoirseRonan). At the 61st British Academy Film Awards, it won the Best Film of the Year and the Production Design award.
