Masterpiece Book & Film Club - The Child in Time

The Child in Time by Ian McEwan

Adapted by Stephen Butchard from Ian McEwan’s Whitbread Prize winning novel, and directed by Julian Farino, The Child in Time is a lyrical and heart-breaking exploration of love, loss and the power of things unseen. Benedict Cumberbatch will star as Stephen Lewis, a successful writer of children’s books, who is confronted with the unthinkable: the loss of a child. With tenderness and insight, the film explores the dark territory of a marriage devastated by the loss of a child. Kate’s absence sets Stephen and his wife on diverging paths as both struggle with an all-consuming grief. With the passage of time, a balance of sorts returns, until hope surfaces and triumphs unexpectedly. The Child in Time premieres Sunday, April 1st, 2018 on MASTERPIECE!
