- Alternate Character Interpretation Is August a righteous crusader fighting against the people who exploited his sister and continue to dishonour her memory? Or just a raging fundamentalist against people with a perfectly legal business? On the same lines, Charlie. August holds him responsible for Christina's death as well as everything that happened to Mia. Mia however has fond memories of him, nobody forced Christina into her job and the exact circumstances of her death are vague, making Charlie's part in it rather ambiguous. At the end of the movie we see him putting flowers on the graves of August, Mia and Christina.
