New releases

This week’s feature film release from Production Guild members sees the second McEwan adaptation featured at the Toronto Film Festival. Directed by Richard Eyre, Emma Thompson stars as a widely admired judge in a uniquely painful case. Her ruling, concerning a desperately sick teenage boy, coincides with her own marital crisis and childlessness. This week's feature film release from PG members is The Children Act.

In television, Age Before Beauty, Sick Note and Keeping Faith continue.
