The Children Act

|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on April 20, 2019 at 7:00 pm

A talented teenager with leukaemia needs a blood transfusion to save his life. He and his Jehovah’s Witness family refuse this but under the ‘Children Act’ in the UK, they can be overruled by the state. Emma Thompson plays the sensitive but dispassionate and scrupulous judge who must decide. Based on a novel by Ian McEwan, the film is ‘urbane, understated . . . and impeccably interpreted by a superb cast’ making it ‘an unmitigated pleasure to watch’ (Washington Post). Thompson’s performance, especially, has been hailed by all reviewers of this powerful film.
