Atonement by Joe Wright( Visual )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 2,566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1935, thirteen-year-old fledgling writer Briony Tallis and her family live a life of wealth and privilege in their enormous mansion. On the warmest day of the year, the country estate takes on an unsettling hothouse atmosphere, stoking Briony's vivid imagination. Robbie Turner, the educated son of the family's housekeeper, carries a torch for Briony's headstrong older sister Cecilia. He hopes that Cecilia has comparable feelings. All it will take is one spark for this relationship to combust. When it does, Briony - who has a crush on Robbie, is compelled to interfere. She goes so far as to accuse Robbie of a crime he did not commit. Cecilia and Robbie declare their love for each other, but, ultimately, he is arrested. Briony bears false witness and the course of three lives is changed forever. As Briony grow older, she continues to seek forgiveness for her childhood misdeed. Through a terrible and courageous act of imagination, she finds the path to her uncertain atonement, and to an understanding of the power of enduring love
In Bruges by Martin McDonagh( Visual )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 1,470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ray and Ken, two foul-mouthed Irish hit men, are hiding out in Bruges, Belgium. For Ray, Bruges is a place where you can spend a year in a weekend, while Ken finds the ancient town calming and contemplative. Ken and Ray work for Harry, a crime lord who eventually materializes in Bruges, and ends up proving that even professional hitmen have their feelings. A loopy, violent fable that is part thriller, part spoof, with a dash of dark comedy, leavened with intellectual conceits and religious allegory--but in no way is "In Bruges" long, boring, or slow

Igor, a young adolescent, is helping his father, Roger, run an illegal immigrant labour ring while continuing to indulge in childhood pastimes (building a go-kart with two pals). For Igor taking part in his father's scams is part of the natural order of things like stealing a purse from the old lady whose car he is repairing, "innocent" wrong doings ... But he is about to lose his innocence abruptly the day when, with Roger, and upon his orders, they leave Hamidou, an African migrant, to die after he accidentaly falls from some scaffolding. Before he dies, Hamidou aks Igor to promise to look after his wife Assita and son Seydou. Igor makes his promise without Roger's knowledge and this is the beginning of the gradual awakening of moral awkeness in Igor, who is torn between fear, loyalty to his father, and loyalty to his promise. When he correctly guesses what his father intends to do with Assita, who is stubbornly waiting for her husband's return and refuses to go back to her own country, Igor runs away with her, without revealing the truth about Hamidou to her. This is Igor's first break with his father, the first betrayal. While on the run, Igor helps Assita and her Seydou, and little by little discovers compassion and mutual commitment. When Assita places her trust in him after a series of clashes, Igor feels that the only response that this trust deserves is to tell the truth about Hamidou's death. He tries to persuade his father to join him in telling her the truth, but when Roger refuses, Igor makes up his mind to betray him. Igor undergoes a long initiation into truth, during which he loses his father but finds human dignity
