The Children Act (2017 movie, released 2018)

Legal drama adapted by Ian McEwan from his 2014 novel, starring Emma Thompson, Stanley Tucci and Ffion Whitehead. Has this had a wide enough distribution to make it worth discussion here? It's just got a limited release in the UK, and I understand it's gone straight to streaming in the USA. (IMDB, BBC)

Adam Curtis documentaries

Is anyone interested in talking about an Adam Curtis documentary? (In related questions: does anyone know a way for me to watch parts two and three of All Watched Over By Machines of Loving Grace? I am willing to pay!) I have been working my way through his catalog (which, taken all in a row, is pretty intense) and would be interested in talking about some of his movies. All Watched Over is my strongest contender, if I can find the other parts. But also The Way of All Flesh, or his film about Nick Leeson, or the Century of the Self... I'm flexible!
