Have a Knightley to remember on us, as Keira stars in Atonement

To celebrate the release of Atonement in cinemas on September 7, The TES Magazine is teaming up with Universal Pictures and Working Title to give you the chance to see the film first and for free.

Based on Ian McEwan's bestselling novel, Atonement is directed by Joe Wright and produced by Paul Webster, the directorproducer team behind the award winning Pride and Prejudice.

In the summer of 1935, 13-year-old Briony Tallis sees her older sister Cecilia (Keira Knightley) strip off her clothes and plunge into the fountain in the garden of their country house. Watching Cecilia is their housekeeper's son Robbie Turner (James McAvoy), a childhood friend.

By the end of that day, the lives of all three will have been changed forever. Robbie and Cecilia will have crossed a boundary they had never before dared to approach and will have become victims of the younger girl's scheming imagination, and Briony will have committed a dreadful crime, the guilt for which will colour her entire life.

The cast also includes Brenda Blethyn, Vanessa Redgrave and Benedict Cumberbatch Atonement is released on September 7
