The Children Act

In the adaptation of Ian McEwan’s 2014 novel, Emma Thompson stars as an eminent High Court judge who specialises in family law, and finds herself wrestling with a particularly difficult case. Against a background of her marriage disintegrating, she must rule on the case surrounding not-quite-an-adult Adam – a 17-year-old Jehovah’s Witness who refuses to have a potentially life-saving blood transfusion on religious grounds. His parents are in agreement, but should Fiona rule that it is in his interests to have the transfusion, and force him to do so? All this in the midst of a marital crisis – Stanley Tucci plays Maye’s husband – who feels he has been squeezed out of his wife’s life. A complex story, with lots of meaty dialogue to mull over, combine with a tremendous performance from Dame Emma. “sensitive, thoughtful drama about complicated issues” Empire “tremendous central performance from Emma Thompson” 105 mins 12A: contains infrequent strong language
