"Atonement: Music from the Motion Picture" is the Academy Award and Golden Globe-winning soundtrack from the 2007 film "Atonement", composed by Dario Marianelli and performed by French classical pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet. This was their second collaboration with director Joe Wright, following the soundtrack for his 2005 adaptation of "Pride & Prejudice".

In addition to winning an Academy Award for Best Original Score and a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score, Marianelli received nominations for the Broadcast Film Critics Association Award for Best Composer and the Chicago Film Critics Association Award for Original Score. Marianelli also received three awards for Film Score of the Year, Best Original Score, and Film Music Composition of the Year for "Elegy for Dunkirk" in the International Film Music Critics Association Awards.

The most notable elements of the score are the piano and the typewriter, which is often directly influenced by the characters' actions. When a character stops typing on the typewriter, for example, the ticking typewriter in the score ceases. The title of track 4, "Cee, You and Tea" is a play on the spelling of the word "cunt," which is in the letter that Robbie writes and Briony intercepts, thus setting off the chain of events in the film.
