The Child in Time (2018)
Critic Reviews for The Child in Time
Despite the splendid cast, The Child In Time felt smug, affected and monotonous. The complicated storyline of the book quite simply didn't work when condensed into a TV show.
As the raw emotion faded, it became not so much unsettling to watch as just odd.
Hard to recommend, as it was so sad but, on the other hand, it was so good at what it is like to be so sad.
It's hopefully not too backhanded a compliment to say that it really made me want to read the book.
A rarity: nuanced, unmawkish, unsentimental. It steered us through this unthinkable limbo... in an intellectual, almost spiritual way, examining too the very meaning of childhood, time and sanity, yet ended with a sense of hope.
