Emma Thompson in First Trailer for Court Drama 'The Children Act'

The Children Act Trailer

“My Lady, they’re ready for you.” eOne UK has revealed the first official trailer for a court drama titled The Children Act, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year. The film’s title is a reference to a particular law in England: “When a court determines any question with respect to the upbringing of a child, the child’s welfare shall be the court’s paramount consideration.” The film stars Emma Thompson as an eminent high court judge, who is asked to rule on the case of Adam, a brilliant young boy who is refusing a life-saving blood transfusion on religious grounds. The cast includes Fionn Whitehead, Stanley Tucci, Ben Chaplin, Jason Watkins, Rosie Cavaliero, and Nikki Amuka-Bird. This looks like a compelling film that deals with a complex issue, not only about ethics and law, but humanity and survival and life itself. ›››
