Favorite movies of all time
↳ Atonement (2007)
"I’d like to think this isn’t weakness or evasion, but a final act of kindness. I gave them their happiness."
The only way you could meet my crazy was by doing something crazy yourself.
Inspired by this x
We’re a team, aren’t we? And I’m so proud of my victors. So proud. You both deserved so much better. I am truly sorry.
Just look at her now though.
In the first movie, she was white as a sheet, with fake colours, hair and emotions.
She looks more natural in the second movie because Katniss and Peeta inspired her, and she felt close to them. Now that they’re being ripped away from her, she doesn’t love the Capitol enough to smile.
She’s burning with fear and anger and sorrow.
now this is what i call minor character development at it’s finest
I LITERALLY CANNOT JUST SCROLL PAST THIS POST IT’S PROBABLY THE TENTH TIME I’VE REBLOGGED IT TODAY NO JOKE
All the scenes with Effie talking about them going back into the game are heartbreaking. You see how much she has grown attached to them, to the point to where she loves them with all her heart.
I’ve reblogged this before, but I have to say something.
Effie has been bringing tributes from District 12 for years now, and she’s never shown any visible remorse about sending children to their deaths every year. We don’t know how she originally felt about it, but the reason she paints her face like a mask? That’s not just physical. She’s learned to hide that remorse. This is her job, after all. She knows those children are going to die and there’s nothing she can do about it, so might as well put on a lot of make up and a smile and keep going.
But then something happens that she’s never seen. Katniss and Peeta win. They get to go home. She gets to go with them on their victory tour and watch them get all the money they will ever need to be happy and taken care of for the rest of their lives. Katniss and Peeta are the first bits of hope she’s ever seen since doing this for District 12.
But then the Quarter Quell happens, and she knows that at least one of them isn’t coming home, and she can’t bear that. The only bit of light she’s seen since she first came to 12 is about to be extinguished and she knows there’s no way she could go back to how she used to be and it nearly kills her.
Freshman year is like one big sexual pop quiz. You need to do your homework.
