The Children Act can feel sluggish and melodramatic, weighed down with the use of superfluous flashbacks, letter-reading voice-overs, and the repeated use of stodgy Bach passages. Intelligent, but airless.

The pale, sharp-featured Whitehead brings an appropriately feverish intensity to Adam, who looks less like a typical 21st-century teenager than Lord Byron with a backpack.

File this under missed opportunity. More often than not, it feels like a pretentious episode of Holby City. Or a shallow take on John Huston's The Dead.

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

What makes it not just a feature film but a feature film worth catching (if you're in a cerebral frame of mind) is the quality of Thompson's performance.

The melodrama is piled on during the final act to an unbearable degree with material not even Emma Thompson can save.

It's worth seeing precisely for the heat of the arguments that you can enjoy after the screening and, above all, for Emma Thompson.

If Emma Thompson can't make this drama about a family-court judge conflicted over her own decisions and the precarious state of her own family into something interesting and meaningful, then no one can. And she can't.

The film thinks itself very grown-up and, like many films that think themselves that, plays out its confrontations in the style of a middlebrow play.

Like so many of the movies that stem from McEwan's novels, "The Children Act" is a soulful and sophisticated adult drama that peers into the void between the beauty of ideals and the cost of living by them.

he Children Act works strongest as a tight character study of the central female figure, elevated to higher ground by the astonishing lead performance.

The two central performances could hardly be better. Thompson works here with remarkable subtlety.
