Spanning several decades, 13-year-old writer Briony makes an accusation that changes the course of three lives forever. Through a courageous act of imagination, she finds the path to her uncertain atonement while understanding the power of enduring love.

Our take

Faithfully adapting McEwan’s novel of the same name, British director Joe Wright delivers a structurally ambitious drama that stands out as a powerful movie about tragedy and loss. An Oscar winner for Best Original Score, it stars a 12-year-old Saoirse Ronan in one of her very first screen roles.
