About The Child in Time:
STUDIOCANAL is pleased to announce that the gripping BBC One drama The
Child in Time; a film adaptation by Stephen Butchard of Ian
McEwan's Whitbread Prize winning novel of the same name, which drew in an
audience of 5.7 million viewers when it first aired and is available on
digital download and DVD now.
Starring Benedict Cumberbatch (who also produced the drama with his company SunnyMarch) and Kelly Macdonald as the parents of a child who goes missing, The Child in Time is a lyrical and heartbreaking exploration of love, loss and the power of things unseen.
Stephen Lewis (Cumberbatch), a successful writer of children's books, is confronted with the unthinkable: he loses his only child, four-year-old Kate, in a supermarket. In one horrifying moment that replays itself over the years that follow, Stephen realises his daughter is gone.
With tenderness and insight, the film explores a marriage devastated by the loss of a child. Kate's absence sets Stephen and his wife, Julie (Macdonald), 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.
