Based on Ian McEwan's book, The Children Act is an adult drama brimming with intelligence, sophistication and intrigue. A British high court judge, Fiona Maye, is tasked with deciding if a young man dying of leukemia should have a blood transfusion against his Jehovah Witness parents' wishes. Fiona is having marital problems but ignores them in favour of her work. She is a cauldron of conflicted feelings beneath a veneer of composure. The tension increases as we await her decision in this case that will have far reaching consequences.
