This special screening of the movie includes morning tea and a discussion with host, Jan Epstein, and Research Fellow in Biomedical Ethics, Dr Lauren Notini, at no extra cost. In the movie, Judge Fiona Maye is married to her work, which has become a problem for her husband, Jack. The question: should a couple who are Jehovah’s Witnesses be permitted to deny a life-saving blood transfusion to their leukemia-stricken 17-year-old son. Fiona finds herself taking unusual measures to determine her verdict — measures that will have far-reaching consequences. We recommend you book online. There is ample parking beneath the cinema and your cinema ticket entitles you to two hours of free parking. We will meet in the Cinema Nova foyer at 10:15 am and will retire to a café afterwards for relaxation and a chat. Visit Cinema Nova online booking office.
