Emma Thompson & Ian McEwan

The award-winning actor and author talk to Pamela Paul

Pamela Paul, editor of The New York Times Book Review, moderates a conversation with two of Britain’s most beloved and iconic voices — Academy Award- and Golden Globe-winning actor and screenwriter Emma Thompson, and best-selling, award-winning author, Ian McEwan.

Thompson stars in the film “The Children Act,” adapted by McEwan from his own novel about a British High Court judge who, in the midst of a marital crisis, must rule on a life-changing legal case concerning the survival of a teenage boy. Watch Thompson and McEwan engage in a riveting conversation about challenging our belief systems, forging profound connections, and getting to the core of what constitutes right and wrong.
