Atonement Trivia Questions

1. Briony wrote a play, "The Trials of Arabella", to celebrate her brother's visit. Who was to play the lead?

From Quiz

Answer: Lola

After Briony finished typing her play she spoke briefly with Robbie and told him she was going to perform it later with her cousins. During the discussion of the play with Lola and the twins, Lola begged to play Arabella, and Briony reluctantly agreed. Further discussion of the play proved frustrating for Briony as the twins quickly lost interest and wanted to go for a swim instead. Alone in the room, Briony was drawn to the window by a bee, but then saw Cecilia and Robbie out by the fountain.

2. When we first see Cecilia and Robbie they are having an argument. What is this argument about?

From Quiz Atonement

Answer: Robbie has just broken an antique vase that belongs to Cecilia's family.

When we first see Robbie and Cecilia, we are seeing them through Briony's window. When we see them through the window they are having an argument because Robbie has just broken an antique vase belonging to Cecilia's family. A piece of this vase has just fallen into the fountain. Cecilia believes this antique vase is the most valuable possession of her family.

3. After the vase was broken, Cecilia said, "You realize that's probably the most valuable thing we own". What was Robbie's response?

From Quiz Atonement

Answer: "Not anymore it isn't."

At the fountain, Robbie tried to help Cecilia but ended up breaking the vase. Finding no humor in Robbie's light-hearted remark, Cecilia removed her outer clothing and dove into the fountain to retrieve a piece of the vase. After she emerged from the water, Cecilia and Robbie stared at each other momentarily, becoming very aware of Cecilia's lack of attire and the attraction between them. Robbie then looked away while Cecilia put her clothing back on, grabbed the vase and walked back to the house.

4. What are the names of Lola's two younger brothers?

From Quiz Atonement

Answer: Pierrot and Jackson

Lola, Pierrot and Jackson have come to live with Cecilia and her family for the summer, because their parents are in the process of divorcing. The three of them begin to act in a play that Briony writes at the start of the movie, but the twins run off because they want to go for a swim. We don't see the twins in the movie after they run away, but in the short time we do see them we learn that they blame Lola for forcing them to live with Briony for the summer.

5. What did Briony do with Robbie's letter to Cecilia?

From Quiz Atonement

Answer: Read it, then gave it to Cecilia

After tearing the envelope open in the hall and reading what Robbie had typed, Briony hurriedly handed the letter to her sister as she ran over to greet Leon. Cecilia read it and immediately asked if Briony had read the letter, but even without Briony's answer Cecilia knew that she had. While Briony was discussing the letter's contents with Lola a little later, the two girls concluded that Robbie was a sex maniac.

6. What color is the dress that Keira Knightley's character, Cecilia, wears during the dinner?

From Quiz Atonement

Answer: Green

Keira Knightley's character, Cecilia, wears an emerald green dress during the dinner. This dress has since been voted the best dress of this century, beating the famous dress Marilyn Monroe wore in "The Seven Year Itch" and the little black dress that Audrey Hepburn wore in "Breakfast at Tiffany's". Since the movie, lots of different designers have released similar, emerald green dresses.

7. After dressing for dinner, Briony noticed something on the floor as she came downstairs. What item caught her attention?

From Quiz Atonement

Answer: Cecilia's hair clip

When Robbie arrived at the house he found out that instead of being offended by the note, Cecilia had come to realize her own feelings for Robbie. Overcome with emotion, the two expressed their love for each other in the seclusion of the library. Briony noticed the hair clip lying near the library door, then went inside where she found her sister and Robbie making love. Not understanding what was going on, Briony thought that Robbie was attacking Cecilia.

8. What does Paul show Lola, while they are in the nursery?

From Quiz Atonement

Answer: Sugar coated chocolate

Paul shows Lola this when he comes into the playroom to talk to the twins. He also tells her that the government is paying his company to make the chocolate bars so that they can be sent over with the soldiers going off to war. This is because the chocolate will not melt and spread over the rest of the food products.

9. It was during the search for the missing twins that the event which led to Briony's false accusation occurred. Who found the twins and brought them home?

From Quiz Atonement

Answer: Robbie

Briony discovered just before dinner that the twins had run away so everyone began searching the grounds. Out by herself, Briony came upon a man assaulting Lola. Lola was vague about who it was, but Briony said she saw him, she saw Robbie, and convinced Lola to say the same. After the police were called, Briony told them that she had seen Robbie attacking Lola. To back up her claim, Briony went through Cecilia's things, found the letter Robbie had sent and gave it to the police. With Cecilia being the only one at the house who believed in Robbie's innocence, they all waited for him to return. When he did, he had the twins with him, but his expression changed as he realized that something was wrong. Robbie was arrested and put in jail for the crime that he didn't commit.

10. Who sees the man who rapes Lola and reports it to the police?

From Quiz Atonement

Answer: Briony

Briony sees the man who rapes Lola while they are out looking for the twins who have run away. She isn't sure who she has seen but because of the note from Robbie to Cecilia, which leads her to believe that Robbie is a sex crazed maniac, she thinks it is Robbie. She stumbles across Lola and the man raping her on the little hill by the stream where she had been playing earlier in the day.

11. Where had Briony been just before she visited Cecilia's flat?

From Quiz Atonement

Answer: Paul and Lola's wedding

Briony saw newsreel footage of Paul Marshall and his fiancee, her cousin Lola, and later went to the ceremony. While listening to the minister, Briony remembered that she had seen the face of Lola's attacker, and it was Paul. Briony failed to speak up when the minister asked if anyone had just cause they could not be married, but upon seeing her afterwards, both Lola and Paul were visibly upset and hurried from the church. Afterwards, Briony went to Cecilia's flat where she found Robbie getting ready to report for duty again. She admitted to them how wrong her actions had been and apologized. Neither of them were willing to forgive Briony, but they instructed her to see a solicitor to set the record straight. Both were surprised when Briony told them Paul Marshall had been the attacker.

12. Who dies when the water mains are bombed and fill the tunnels?

From Quiz Atonement

Answer: Cecilia

During one of the attacks on London, thousands of people take shelter in the metro tunnels because they are perfect bomb shelters. Cecilia dies in the metro tunnel when a German bomb bursts the water main, flooding the tunnels. The water kills her and all of the other Londoners who had taken refuge in there from the bombs.

13. Which part of the story did the elderly Briony admit had NOT really happened?

From Quiz Atonement

Answer: Briony going to Cecilia's flat

Briony was being interviewed about the release of her novel "Atonement". She admitted to the interviewer that this was her last novel because she was dying of vascular dementia and wanted to finish the book before she lost her memory. Briony said that although the novel was a true story, she had changed the ending to a more hopeful one. In truth, she admitted that she had been too much of a coward to go and see her sister in June 1940, and Robbie had in fact died on June 1 at Bray-Dunes of septicemia. She never set things right with Cecilia, who died in October 1940 in the Balham tube station flooding. Briony felt that by changing the story in the novel, she had given Cecilia and Robbie the happiness they had deserved, which her actions had prevented them from having.
