The Child in Time

Academy Award® nominee Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game, Sherlock) stars alongside Kelly Macdonald (Boardwalk Empire, Trainspotting), Stephen Campbell Moore (The History Boys, The Go-Between) and Saskia Reeves (Luther, Shetland) in Stephen Butchard's adaptation of Ian McEwan's award-winning novel, THE CHILD IN TIME. 

Set two years after his daughter went missing, THE CHILD IN TIME follows Stephen Lewis (Benedict Cumberbatch), a children's author, as he struggles to find purpose in his life without her. His wife Julie (Kelly Macdonald) has left him, and his best friends Charles (Stephen Campbell-Moore) and Thelma (Saskia Reeves) have retired to the countryside, battling demons of their own. With tenderness and insight, the movie explores the dark territory of a marriage devastated, the loss of childhood, the fluidity of time, grief, hope, and acceptance. 

 

THE CHILD IN TIME is a lyrical and heart-breaking exploration of love, loss, and the power of things unseen.
