The Children Act, written by Ian McEwan and directed by Richard Eyre will open in September after debuting on DirecTV the month before, presumably to draw in Direct-TV users who might want to catch the film earlier. Either way, her performance was well reviewed back in September of 2017 when the film hit the Toronto Film Fest. It’s finally getting a release in the fall for this year’s Oscar race, though we have no idea whether the Best Actress race will be as crowded as it was. Thompson is one of the all time greats.
You can watch The Children Act exclusively on DIRECTV August 16 and in Theaters September 14.
