The First Exclusive Look at Benedict Cumberbatch in ‘THE CHILD IN TIME’
Check out your first exclusive look that BBC has released for their upcoming drama adaption, THE CHILD IN TIME, starring none other than Benedict Cumberbatch!
The 90-minute, one-off TV movie is based on Ian McEwan’s award-winning 1987 novel and will be directed by Julian Farino. It’s the first production of Cumberbatch’s SunnyMarch TV. Stephen Butchard adapts and is produced by SunnyMarch TV and Pinewood Television for BBC One and co-produced by PBS’ Masterpiece.
Cumberbatch will be joined by Kelly Macdonald as the estranged wife of Cumberbatch’s children’s author Stephen Lewis, who struggles to find purpose in life following the disappearance of his daughter two years earlier; Stephen Campbell Moore and Saskia Reeves, who will play Lewis’ best friends.
Currently filming in and around London, here’s the official description:
THE CHILD IN TIME shows us just how quickly life can change in an instant. Stephen Lewis is a successful author of children’s books. It is a routine Sunday morning and while on a trip to the supermarket, Stephen gets distracted. Within moments, his daughter is kidnapped and his life is forever changed.
From that moment, Lewis spirals into bereavement that has effects on his relationship with his wife, his psyche, and with time itself: ‘It was a wonder there could be so much movement, so much purpose, all the time. He himself had none.'”
