Genre: Drama. Dir: Richard Eyre. Country: UK.
Emma Thompson gives one of the best performances of her career. As her marriage to Jack (Stanley Tucci) flounders, eminent High Court judge Fiona Maye has a life-changing decision to make at work – should she force a teenage boy, Adam (Fionn Whitehead), 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. A powerful drama based on Ian McEwan’s novel.
