  • Feb. 13: Atonement. Ian McEwan’s story of love and war; childhood and class; and guilt and forgiveness in prewar England.
  • Feb. 20: The Bookshop. An English widow fulfills her dream of opening a bookstore in a seaside village and struggles with the polite but uncompromising opposition of the town’s arbiters of culture.
