Emmy says:
Another wonderful character study by Ian McEwan translated to screen. A harrowing journey of life as a Justice and the relationships around her. Magnificent performances. 10/10.

Jeff says:
Emma Thompson once again shows her incredible poise and stature in a film that is all about showing emotion through the cool British reserve. Admirable performances from the rest of the cast, and an engaging and heart-breaking story told with delicacy for all sides of the central argument. 9/10.
