ONE THEME PER MOVIE
→ Flowers in Atonement
..my sister and Robbie were never able to have the time together they both so longed for, and deserved. And which ever since, I’ve…ever since I’ve always felt I prevented. But, what sense of hope or satisfaction could a reader derive from an ending like that? So in the book I wanted to give Robbie and Cecilia what they lost out on in life. I’d like to think this isn’t weakness or evasion. But a final act of kindness I gave them: their happiness.
Drop Thy still dews of quietness,
Till all our strivings cease;
Take from our souls the strain and stress,
And let our ordered lives confess.
The beauty of Thy peace, the beauty of thy peace.
Breathe through the heats of our desire ,
Thy coolness and Thy balm;
Let sense be dumb,let flesh retire;
Speak through the earthquake, wind, and fire.
O still, small voice of calm, O still, small voice of calm.
