!!This film !!''When Marnie Was There'' provides examples of:



* AmbiguousDisorder: Anna is frequently noted to act oddly for a child or focus on strange things. As the book begins, she book acts detached from other people, enjoys spending time alone, has little time for the family she lives with, and sends postcards to her guardian that are only a few sentences long. She views the world as being a circle with people on the "inside" and on the "outside", believing herself to be on the outside and separate from everyone else. At one point, she goes into a fury over an insult which everyone, even the narrator, considers to be silly. She also doesn't seem to have many friends, but the people she does meet and bond with (Marnie [[spoiler:and, later, the family that moves into her house]]) she's able to form very close ties to. Some of her behavior can be attributed to her [[spoiler:fearing that her foster mother is only keeping her for the money]], but her reaction to that still comes across as unusual for an upset child.

** Anna is this around everyone, hiding her feelings unless provoked because she knows that she has a good life and thus she shouldn't complain. The few times that the facade breaks is heartbreaking, like when she tells Marnie that [[spoiler:she found out her foster parents were being paid to look after her, but they use it to take care of her, and she hates that it was being kept a secret.]]
