The Court Room, Old Police Station

Doors open 2.30pm (1hr 46 mins)

The self-possessed and professional high court judge Fiona Maye spends her working day making decisions that affect other people’s lives, but is neglectful and detached in her own marriage. When she presides over the case of a teenage boy requiring a blood transfusion, long buried emotions come to the fore and she is forced to re-examine her life. With a screenplay by Ian McEwan based on his novel, this 2017 film covers an astonishing range of human emotions with all of their complexities. Directed by Richard Eyre and starring Emma Thompson, Fionn Whitehead and Stanley Tucci.

‘It’s the film that’s had cinema-goers reaching for a tissue. The deeply moving tale of a critically ill child’ Telegraph

‘…worth seeing precisely for the heat of the arguments that you can enjoy after the screening and, above all, for Emma Thompson.’ New Yorker

With thanks to Campden Film Society, showing annually nine films: English and Foreign Language films, classics and interesting recent releases
