James McAvoy Framed

I will be writing up a post later tonight on my pick for "Best Shot" in the movie Atonement, which is more difficult than it seems because not only is it one of my favorite films ever, but because nearly every shot in the film would be worthy of a write-up.

So in an effort to highlight as much beauty from the film as I can, I thought I'd post these shots from the film of James McAvoy's character Robbie Turner framed by door frames. Enjoy...

I wonder if someone has asked director Joe Wright and cinematographer Seamus McGarvey why they chose to shoot this character through doors a few times, but the only thing I can think of is that Robbie is confined in his life just as he's confined by these doors. That or the punny (certainly not funny) explanation that Robbie was framed for rape and thus... So, any other ideas?

Thanks for reading. Feel free to drop me a line. Instead of being Anonymous though, pick a name. Any name would do. Thanks again!
