Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The movie is nevertheless compelling, thanks largely to the interplay between [Benedict] Cumberbatch and [Kelly] Macdonald, in what amounts to a peculiar twist on a love story within the up-close-and-personal contours of a stage play.
Fresh: Children get lost -- we're used to that fact as the foundation of dramatic literature - but The Child in Time is about the child who can get "lost" as we grow into adulthood. That loss is also profound.
Fresh: The actors are convincing, honest and heartbreaking. It's the hardest kind of thing to do. They do it splendidly.
