In the midst of a marital crisis, a High Court judge must decide if she should order a life-saving blood transfusion for a teen with cancer despite his family’s refusal to accept medical treatment for religious reasons.
  • Wonderful actress (Emma Thompson) (+1)
  • Takes an odd turn in the middle (+0)
  • Great topic, not sure if treated to my satisfaction (+1/2)
  • High expectations, slightly disappointed (-1/2)

This was a movie I was excited about seeing because the actress is a great lady, and the topic is one that interests me greatly. The plot meanders from the halfway point until the end, leaving me slightly disappointed and feeling awkward by the time the end credits rolled.

Score: 6/10
