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

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.

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.

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

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.
