Children Act, The
High Court Justice Fiona Maye is used to presiding over cases where she must act as a Solomon whose decisions irrevocably effect people’s lives. But a case that comes before her involving gravely ill 17-year-old Adam (Fionn Whitehead) is a unique quandary. Adam’s parents are Jehovah’s Witnesses, and are refusing to allow him to have a blood transfusion that could save his life. Adam appears to share their beliefs, but Fiona has the power to order that the treatment go ahead against his and his family’s wishes. Taking an unorthodox tact, Fiona decides to visit Adam in hospital, and an unlikely bond springs up between them.
Adapted by Ian McEwan from his own novel, and directed by Richard Eyre (Notes on a Scandal, Iris), THE CHILDREN ACT is a deeply humane film that grapples with the morals of belief and who should hold power over a life.
