The Child in Time is a 90-minute adaptation of Ian McEwan’s 1987 novel of the same name; it’s the story of children’s author Stephen and his wife Julie coping with their grief after their young daughter is abducted. Benedict Cumberbatch put it best, describing the original novel as ‘profound, beautiful and very moving’, talking about grief with ‘telling honesty’.

I’m not quite sure this was any good, exactly; often the most interesting aspects weren’t quite given enough space and focus, and the less interesting elements were borne of (as far as I understood) an overdependence on the book, despite at the same time attempting to break away from it.
