Here is how The IMDb describes this movie:

When Briony Tallis (Saoirse Ronan), thirteen-years-old and an aspiring writer, sees her older sister Cecilia (Keira Knightley) and Robbie Turner (James McAvoy) at the fountain in front of the family estate, she misinterprets what is happening, thus setting into motion a series of misunderstandings and a childish pique that will have lasting repercussions for all of them.

Robbie is the son of a family servant, toward whom the family has always been kind.

They paid for his time at Cambridge, and now he plans on going to medical school.

After the fountain incident, Briony reads a letter intended for Cecilia and concludes that Robbie is a deviant.

When her cousin Lola (Juno Temple) is raped, she tells the police that it was Robbie she saw committing the deed. — Garykmcd

My Thoughts

Surprisingly it was my male cousin ME who recommended this movie to me back when I saw it years ago when I was at his house helping him with a computer problem I think.

I had seen a trailer for it, it was not the type of movie that I thought that he would watch because it seemed like a romance, and so I decided to watch it.

There is a scene at the end of this movie that made me cry, so this movie is among the small list of movies that made me cry.

I remember it being a good movie with good acting and cinematography.

The scene that made me cry was pretty powerful and well acted, I need to watch that scene again, I have only seen this movie once years ago, but I would recommend watching it.

It was interesting watching a World War II movie from a British point-of-view instead of the usual American point-of-view.

The end,
