When 13-year-old Briony Tallis spies her older sister and neighbor Robbie Turner at the fountain in front of the family estate, her subsequent misinterpretation of their relationship sets into motion a series of misunderstandings that will have tragic and lasting repercussions for the whole family. Based on acclaimed British author, Ian McKellan’s eponymous masterpiece, this film by director Joe Wright chronicles a crime and its consequences over the course of six decades, beginning in the 1930s and continuing into the Second World War.
