Mundane realism

Anna 18 -


I realise how vague that is but I'm not one to share willingly.



There’s something about this gif set that makes me more sad about Atonement than any other I’ve come across. I think it’s because it so perfectly incapsulates the Robbie that was, before they (Cecilia’s family and society and prison and the war) ruined him. He’s beautiful, and intelligent, and educated, but he’s putting on his gloves and boots to work, because he’s done nothing but work hard his entire life, and still—his face, his expression is so good natured, so bright….

Just. How could they take something so perfect and beautiful and destroy it?

It for reasons like this (the fact that I am so upset by images from the movie, even YEARS after I originally saw it) that I can never watch this movie again…regardless of the fact that it’s one of the most gorgeous films I’ve ever seen…
