The Child In Time

The Child In Time

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.
