THE CHILDREN ACT
Oct 26 - 29, 5:45 & 8:00
Emma Thompson is mesmerizing as a British family court judge whose days are spent ruling in the ethically complex cases of family law. Stanley Tucci plays her neglected husband who is at a breaking point in their marriage, and Fionn Whitehead (Dunkirk) is a young, sick man who challenges her beliefs which has a strong emotional impact on her even as her personal life crumbles around her. Directed by Richard Eyre (Iris) and adapted by author Ian McEwan from his own novel, this is a graceful and compelling drama.
