Of course, films aren't "true" and never will be, but this one attempts to intermingle literature, movies, and history, all at the service of telling a story about what one highly-creative character believes she sees, the horrible repercussions on her loved ones due to her acts and how she attempts to atone for them.

Unfortunately, Robbie is 18 years old, and in love with Briony's sister Cecilia.
The Gnat
I liked the film Juno a lot (and I still have to see some of the top ones), but I simply love the story in this film (as well as the acting and directing).
