Afternoon Tea: Atonement at Alamo Drafthouse (Richardson)
Susan Kamyab Recommends
If you've already seen "Atonement", then you might understand just how frustrating Saoirse Ronan's character can be. But, no matter your frustration, the film is still incredible. James McAvoy and Kiera Knightley's chemistry is explosive and the story will have you on the edge of your seat till the very end. Enjoy this special screening of the film while snacking on three servings of tea and treats!
Directed by Joe Wright and based on Ian McEwan's novel, ATONEMENT explores the devastating power of one girl's (Saoirse Ronan) decision by tracing its consequences over the span of six decades.
When Briony Tallis (Ronan, in a performance that earned her an Oscar nomination) discovers that the object of her crush, Robbie Turner (James McAvoy), fancies her sister (Kiera Knightley) instead, she lashes out by blaming him for a recent rape that she witnessed. What follows is a tragedy made beautiful by striking performances, majestic cinematography and Dario Marianelli's Academy Award-winning score.
Your ticket includes three servings of tea and a plate of treats:
Thyme House Cured Salmon & Watercress Sandwich*
Pimento Cheese on English Cucumber
Lime Lavender Cake
