2007’s critically acclaimed Atonement marked the breakthrough in McAvoy’s career. His parents divorced when he was seven, which McAvoy took hard. According to his father, McAvoy avoided any contact with him after the elder McAvoy moved in with his new lover. His performance in the play as a gay hustler impressed filmmaker Joe Wright so much that he stayed on his radar and offered McAvoy parts in his movies, but to no avail, as the actor turned them down for years. The well-received six-part British drama serial tells the story of a newspaper’s investigation into the death of a young woman and was broadcast on BBC One. Calling the program a “must-see”, the Chicago Tribune recommended State of Play for its cast’s performance. His public profile was raised in 2005 with the release of Walt Disney Pictures’s The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
