WHO: Robbie Turner
BY: Ian McEwan
PROS: Smart, passionate, romantic, kind, strong, loyal,
CONS: Bitter, hot-headed
BEST SHINING MOMENT: Doggedly making his way through the fields of France to Dunkirk, holding on to the hope that he will be reunited with his true love.
MOST INTENSE MOMENT: Confronting Briony when she comes to Robbie and Cecilia’s flat to atone for lying about him to the police.
In the Joe Wright 2007 movie of the novel Robbie is played by very nicely James McAvoy. Here are some highlights from the film….
