High Court judge Fiona Maye is assigned a complex ethical case of family law: a young man, Adam, just shy of his 18th birthday, is refusing a blood transfusion that would save his life but goes against his religious beliefs. Still legally a child, Adam’s fate rests in Fiona’s hands. Should she force him to live? Adapted from Ian McEwan’s novel and starring Emma Thompson as Fiona Maye, The Children Act is a riveting and soulful drama.

“A heartbreaking lament for loves lost and lives unrealised, a restrained, nuanced movie about nuance and restraint.” - Sight and Sound
