The Children Act - 12A - Film Night - 105 mins


As her marriage to Jack (Stanley Tucci) flounders, eminent High Court judge Fiona Maye (Emma Thompson) has a life-changing decision to make at work - should she force a teenage boy, Adam (Fionn Whitehead), to have the blood transfusion that will save his life? Her unorthodox visit to his hospital bedside has a profound impact on them both, stirring strong new emotions in the boy and long-buried feelings in her. From the official website


“Richard Eyre's direction is as delicate as a June morning and Thompson gives a performance that deserves a standing ovation. Forget the early days of Tutti Frutti and the fun stuff, she has emerged as Meryl Streep's equal at the top of the actors' pinnacle.” Eye for Film

 

“It's a remarkable, literate, nuanced film, which refuses to play to the gallery but, like the Bach keyboard music on its soundtrack, finds palpable emotion lurking just below a seemingly ordered surface.” Radio Times
