The Children Act

As her marriage to Jack (Stanley Tucci) flounders, High Court judge Fiona Maye (Emma Thompson) has a life-changing decision to make: should she force a teenage boy 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. Featuring flawless performances by Thompson and Tucci, THE CHILDREN ACT is masterfully directed by Richard Eyre (Notes on a Scandal, Stage Beauty) and based on a novel by Ian McEwan.
