Joined by love. Separated by fear. Redeemed by hope.
Based on the novel by Ian McEwan, 'Atonement' opens in England in 1935, on the hottest day of the year. In the looming shadow of World War II, Briony Tallis and her family live a life of wealth and privilege in their enormous Victorian Gothic mansion. Briony, a fledgling writer, is a girl with a vivid imagination. Through a series of catastrophic misunderstandings she accuses Robbie Turner (James McAvoy), the housekeeper?s son, and lover of her sister, Cecilia (Keira Knightley) of a crime he did not commit. This accusation destroys Robbie and Cecilia?s newfound love and dramatically alters the course of all their lives.
