Oscar winner Emma Thompson shares the screen with talented ‘Dunkirk’ newcomer Fionn Whitehead in this moving and moral legal drama.


Fiona Maye, a high court London judge dealing exclusively with family cases, is drowning in the midst of her own crisis. Having paid the heavy personal price for her overbearing workload, Fiona is at breaking point and when she finds herself ruling on the case of Adam (Whitehead) a brilliant 17 year-old boy who is refusing the blood transfusion that will save his life, she is led to question her own choices and forced to deal with regrets about her past decisions.


Grounded in and around London’s Royal Courts of Justice, this is a film which focuses on strength of script and acting, as opposed to dazzling visual statements. Delivering a marvellous, intensely moving, enchantingly witty and remarkably vulnerable performance, Thompson elevates what might have otherwise played as typical melodrama into something with subtlety and profound depth. A heartbreaking lament for loves lost and lives unrealised, a restrained, nuanced movie about nuance and restraint.


“Thompson’s performance brings life to the complex moral questions it attempts to examine.”  (Screen International) (Research Chris Coetsee) Brilliant.
