About the Film

In this sophisticated drama adapted by Ian McEwan from his novel, London High Court Judge Fiona Maye (Emma Thompson) has put her work first for so long that her husband, Jack (Stanley Tucci), has reached his breaking point. As Fiona contends with this personal crisis, she also faces a controversial case involving Adam (Fionn Whitehead), a desperately ill teenager refusing life-saving medical treatment on religious grounds—and her verdict will have unforeseen consequences.
