Keira Knightley is one of the brightest, young Hollywood stars, and she was sweet and thoughtful!
She received her first Best Actress Oscar nomination for "Pride and Prejudice," and now, she's back with director Joe Wright and the creative team from "Prejudice" and they made a searing book-to-film adaptation of Ian McEwan's heartbreaking novel.
Keira talks about:
*** her character, Cecilia Tallis
*** why she made the film
*** what Saoirse Ronan, the young Briony Tallis, thinks of her
