3.4. Charlie and Aunt Helen

3.4.1. It is revealed very early on that Charlie's aunt Helen died in a car crash when he was very young on his birthday. He never had anyone who played a parental role in his life, not even his own parents, before Aunt Helen and she was his "favourite person in the whole world". He never came to terms with the fact that Aunt Helen had died, and thus his memory of her was distorted, stopping him from realising the crimes she had committed against him.

3.4.1.1. At the beginning of the film, it is continually reiterated that Aunt Helen was, and continues to be, the person that Charlie loves the most in the world. As the movie is shown in the perspective of letters that Charlie is writing to an unknown 'friend' (the audience), all we can see about Aunt Helen is what he thinks of her, and so we too believe that she was a wonderful person. However, as the film progresses and the clues begin to unfold about Charlie's past, flashbacks are used to show that the Aunt Helen that Charlie fondly remembers isn't the same person as the real Aunt Helen.
