Our March main film will be The Children Act...

Emma Thompson stars as a brilliant, tortured judge facing a terrible moral dilemma at a crossroads in her career and marriage. Adapted by director Richard Eyre from Ian McEwan's novel, The Children Act follows the story of Fiona (Thompson) as she grapples with the case of a teenage boy from a Jehovah's witness family who needs a blood transfusion to treat his cancer - will she go against the wishes of the family to force him to have the life-saving treatment? Meanwhile, Fiona's all-consuming commitment to her job is putting a strain on her marriage to loving but neglected husband Jack (Stanley Tucci).  

"Thompson's trademark dry humour, intelligence and rueful concern are always a joy but this is a remarkable, luminously eloquent performance. .. you come out of The Children Act with two truths — Thompson deserves another best actress nomination and you will want to marry Stanley Tucci." Metro
 
"The Children Act is concerned with love, intimacy and moral responsibility and it is refreshing to see a movie which sets itself standards of this sort... Emma Thompson’s performance, so elegant and vulnerable, carries the picture." Peter Bradshaw - The Guardian
