The piece I have chosen for the monologue project is the final speech by character Briony Tallis in the film Atonement, based on Ian McEwan’s book of the same name. Briony is played by Vanessa Redgrave.
The only trouble is that she speaks haltingly, so the sound blurb is more like a minute long, rather than 30 seconds. But I don’t think it will be a problem.
The movie is full of great imagery and emotion, so I am certain I will have no trouble coming up with ideas for the book.
