Atonement

For me what is so impressive about this movie is that it doesn’t beat you over the head with the choice that was made and the consequences that continue to roll downhill until the credits role.  The movie very much feels like an epic (not unlike Cold War) and the decision is only one part of the movie.

The other part of the movie that really impressed me was the scenery.  The scenes from Dunkirk were absolutely incredible, not to mention the pre-war backdrops.  Incredible work.
