Adapted from the novel by Ian McEwan, Judge Fiona Maye faces a life changing decision of whether she should force a 17-year-old with leukemia to have a blood transfusion that will save his life, even if it goes against his family’s religious beliefs. In an unorthodox move, she visits the young man in hospital before delivering a verdict that has profound ramifications both personally and professionally. Emma Thompson excels as Judge Maye with a stylish and intelligent performance.
