Joe Wright-Personal Quotes source: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0942504/bio
" Pride [and Prejudice] is my first film with a happy ending. Before, I naively thought they were a cop-out (excuse), but now I've come to believe that happy endings and wish fulfillment are an incredibly important part of our cultural life."
“ Every time I make a film, I feel it gives me the chance to learn something new . I've been lucky over the past few years. Things have just happened for me.”
the word “atonement” derives from an Anglo-Saxon hybrid of the words “at” and “onement”
which rose to prominence in the theological vernacular courtesy of William Tyndale.
When Tyndale was writing the English Bible in 1526, he was looking for a word that would convey a more subtle theological nuance that the word “reconciliation” so as to also comprise the ideas of God’s forgiveness and propitiation ( 補償 ; 贖罪 )
Amid this search, the word “ atonement ” was born and has remained an integral component of theological ( 神學的 ) language and thought.
