A first official look at The Children Act, the upcoming drama movie directed by Richard Eyre and starring Emma Thompson, Fionn Whitehead, and Stanley Tucci:
“Judge Fiona Maye (Emma Thompson) is married to her work, which has become a problem for her husband, Jack (Stanley Tucci), who announces that he wants to have an affair. Treating the matter more as an annoyance than a life-altering crisis, Fiona kicks Jack out and focuses on her current case. The question: should a couple who are Jehovah’s Witnesses be permitted to deny a life-saving blood transfusion to their leukemia-stricken 17-year-old son (Fionn Whitehead)? Fiona finds herself taking unusual measures to determine her verdict — measures that will have far-reaching consequences.”
Refusing blood transfusions because of religion is just dumb, especially when a young life is at stake.
