Abstract

In this World War II romantic drama, an aristocratic child's misunderstanding has disastrous consequence for a young couple. After she witnesses a rape on her family's estate, Briony blames the housekeeper's son Robbie. Her charge separates Robbie from Cecelia and ruins his opportunity to improve his social standing. He volunteers for the British Army after imprisonment, while Cecelia volunteers as a nurse. The two young lovers meet tragic ends, leaving Briony with guilt for destroying their lives.
