The Children Act

Adapted by Booker Prize-winning author Ian McEwan from his own novel, this riveting drama stars two-time Academy Award winner Emma Thompson as a High Court judge tasked with making a decision that will speak to our most fraught questions regarding religious tolerance – and could mean life or death for an innocent young man.
