Atonement #1 for Hollywood Reporter
Selecting his annual top ten, Martin A Grove compiled a list of films he was happy to recommend to viewers, with Atonement at number one.
The epic drama, adapted from an Ian McEwan novel, stars Keira Knightley and James McAvoy in a tale of love, longing and loss spanning six decades.
Second on Grove's list is Ridley Scott's American Gangster, which features Russell Crowe and Denzel Washington in a story of gangsters and crime in 1970s New York.
Others in the selection include the recently released comedy Enchanted, which tells the story of a cartoon princess unceremoniously dumped in real life who then attempts to find her prince, with hilarious results.
"Enchanted was one of the past year's films that I most looked forward to seeing and it left me all the happier for having done so," the writer said.
