Empire reported that Benedict is starring in ‘The Child In Time’. The main character is named Stephen Lewis who is an author of Children’s books. He is at the supermarket one day with his daughter, Katie and she goes missing. Lewis turns to drink and his wife leaves him. He becomes a recluse. The original novel is written by Ian McEwan and will be adapted to a 90 minute TV drama.
I read the novel years ago and it stayed with me – profound, beautiful and very moving.
