  1. Trailer

Fiona Maye (Thompson) is an eminent High Court judge in London presiding with wisdom and compassion over ethically complex cases of family law. But she has paid a heavy personal price for her workload, and her marriage to American professor Jack (Tucci) is at a breaking point. In this moment of personal crisis, Fiona is asked to rule on the case of Adam (Whitehead), a brilliant boy who is refusing the blood transfusion that will save his life. Adam is three months from his 18th birthday and still legally a child. Should Fiona force him to live? Fiona visits Adam in the hospital and their meeting has a profound emotional impact on them both, stirring strong new emotions in the boy and long-buried feelings in her.

"Like so many of the movies that stem from McEwan's novels, THE CHILDREN ACT is a soulful and sophisticated adult drama that peers into the void between the beauty of ideals and the cost of living by them."
David Ehrlich - INDIEWIRE

"THE CHILDREN ACT feels utterly of a piece with the original book: urbane, understated, handsomely realized and impeccably interpreted by a cast of superb actors."
Ann Hornaday - WASHINGTON POST

"It's always rewarding to watch Thompson bring her lucid wit and deep emotional reserves to bear on a meaty role."
Justin Chang - LOS ANGELES TIMES
