The Children Act

Starring Emma Thompson, Stanley Tucci and Fionn Whitehead,  The Children Act follows high court judge Fiona Maye (brought to life by Emma Thompson). As her private life reaches a critical point, with her marriage to Jack (Stanley Tucci) in turmoil, she presides over the ethically complex case of Adam, (Fionn Whitehead) a teenager refusing the blood transfusion which could save his life on religious grounds. 

Originally inspired by a real life story related to novelist Ian McEwan from a Bencher of the Inn, The Right Hon Sir Alan Ward, the drama largely unfolds within the Royal Courts of Justice and the Inn, with many of the scenes filmed on location here at Gray's Inn in November 2016.

Some of our members and staff were able to attend advance screenings in July. We really enjoyed our sneak preview! Make sure you catch it in cinemas from 24 August 2018.
