In the midst of a marital crisis, a High Court judge (Emma Thompson) must decide if she should order a life-saving blood transfusion for a teen with cancer, despite his family’s refusal to accept medical treatment on religious grounds. Based on the novel of the same name by Ian McEwan, the film is a stately courtroom drama, with strong performances by Thompson and her on-screen husband, Stanley Tucci.
