Really good movie - Emma Thompson is amazing in this - and Stanley Tucci isn't in it enough - but when he is - he's great.

Emma Thompson shines in this interesting tale about work, love, and beliefs.

This DVD didn't work well on my player and thus I saw about 1/2 of the film - the introduction and the ending. So difficult to rate my interest level in the story.

This movie can be seen in different light. When the judge visited the teen to determine if he understood that refusing treatment would lead to his slow death, she went beyond evidence gathering. She laughed at his quip and the ice broke.…

Thought provoking!

Very good actors, but the storyline is very much a downer, chose not to watch it.

Beauty through moments of regrets. Living not fulfilled by choices or living with consequences of decisions perhaps left unmade. Art is what makes you pause, ponder and absorb to reflect what beholds you. So is the mastery in this…

A dramatic portrayal of the life of a judge.

A warm, heartfelt story! Well-done and beautifully acted! I really enjoyed this intriguing story and movie! (The volume was low for some reason, though!) Make sure to watch the Commentary, well-worth it! I definitely recommend this…

Another brilliant BBC production. A clever drama that demonstrates some of the life issues that professional women may deal with: marriage, workaholic habits, client/coworker interactions. Also a sneak peak at what a judge for children…

Great actors, but didn’t want to watch.

Laws to protect children from abusive parents were extended to require medical care for minors in these circumstances. Even though it was a life-or-death situation, regardless of how primitive the religious creed, should the government be…

Emma Thompson was cast perfectly in the lead role. Stanley Tucci and Fionn Whitehead also great in their parts. Good drama, but had a weak ending in my opinion.

Brought up by children's mind, secular restraints can be fatal too.

The phenomenal Emma Thompson is reason enough to watch this fine film. All the other main characters are well played, too.

Found it slow and boring....only watched to the end because I wanted to see what happened otherwise I would have turned it off after the first 15mins

Disappointing, would have rated it lower if it wasn’t for the high caliber acting especially from Emma Thompson. None of the characters I could warm to and the improbable and somewhat absurd storyline did not flow well, not to my taste at…

I simply loved it and watched it three times. Emma Thompson is brilliant!

I don't know.... The movie left me scratching my head quite as much as the novel did. I watched the movie in the hope it might illuminate the novel for me. It didn't. I found both had a flat affect that made it tough for me to engage with…

A very compassionate movie that explores the depth of human emotions.

Great acting. Story left me wanting for a little more.

Good movie that explores ethical dilemma's most of us don't even think about.

What excites me most about this movie, is that it's for adults. It's about people dealing with issues in their lives, in an intelligent manner. The kind of movie, that I feel, does not get made these days. See the comments below re:…
