In the midst of a marital crisis, a High Court judge 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 for religious reasons.

Thompson’s performance as a brilliant but tortured judge elevates the second Ian McEwan adaptation of this year’s Toronto film festival, a stately courtroom saga with parallels to the Charlie Gard case (The Guardian)

The Children Act" is that rarest of things: an adult drama, written and interpreted with a sensitivity to mature human concerns...(Variety)

The two central performances could hardly be better. Thompson works here with remarkable subtlety.(Hollywood Reporter)
