The Children Act

FILM CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE
RETURN
Ian McEwan follows 'On Chesil Beach' with another adaptation of one of his own books. It tells the story of a high court judge brilliantly played by Emma Thompson ('Late Night') whose attempts to balance her chaotic personal life with a case involving a young hospital patient (Fionn Whitehead) who refuses a blood transfusion because he is a Jehovah’s Witness. Richard Eyre’s heartfelt film explores the grey area in the relationship between personal choice and the law. ★★★★ "Thompson deserves another best actress nomination" - Larushka Ivan-zadeh, Metro ★★★★ "His most effective movie since Notes on a Scandal" - Kevin Maher, The Times
