Trailer «Atonement»

Through a deliberate false statement, Briony Tallis, a pubescent, overzealous writer (in Marston's case: choreographer) in 1930s England, puts her older sister’s unfit lover in prison and destroys the lives and loves of two people. Her feeling of guilt accompanies her to the end of her life.


Ian McEwan and Cathy Marston about «Atonement»

Ian McEwan, author of «Atonement», paid a visit to Ballett Zürich and talked about what the ballet version of his book evokes in him.
