High Court judge Fiona Maye (Emma Thompson) must decide whether to force a 17-year-old with leukaemia to have the blood transfusion that will save his life, although it is against his parents’, and perhaps also his own, religious beliefs as Jehovah’s Witnesses. She takes the unusual step of meeting the boy, bringing the personal into her professional life. Adapted by Ian McEwan from his own novel and with a powerful performance from Thompson, this is an elegant film which intelligently examines a topical subject.

n 1978, Ron Stallworth – Colorado Springs’ first black police detective – saw a Ku Klux Klan recruitment ad in the local newspaper. He phoned up, disguised his voice to spin a tale of disgust about a fictional black man, and was immediately invited to join the cult. The incredible, true story of how he infiltrated the KKK is adapted here in this hugely enjoyable, bracing and still alarmingly relevant examination of race relations from visionary director Spike Lee.
