Film description

Emma Thompson stars as Fiona Maye, a British High Court judge who, in the midst of a marital crisis, must rule on a life-changing legal case concerning the survival of a teenage boy. A blood transfusion would save the life of a Jehovah’s Witness boy who, just months short of his eighteenth birthday, is refusing the procedure on religious grounds.

Adapted by Ian McEwan from his own novel, this is a deeply affecting exploration of choice and responsibility.
