Over the pass 15 years, author Ian McEwan has had many of his novels make the leap to the big screen with the likes of THE COMFORT OF STRANGERS, ENDURING LOVE, ATONEMENT (which is definitely the most well known one) and most recently ON CHESIL BEACH. The latest novel of his to be adapted into a major film is director Richard Eyre’s THE CHILDREN ACT, which stars Emma Thompson, Stanley Tucci, Fionn Whitehead and scripted by McEwan himself.
