Film Description:

Captured live from the National Theatre in London, this critically acclaimed production directed by Marianne Elliot (Angels in America, War Horse) has astonished audiences around the world and has received seven Olivier and five Tony Awards®. 

Christopher, fifteen years old, stands beside Mrs. Shears’ dead dog. It has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes after midnight and Christopher is under suspicion. He records each fact in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington. He has an extraordinary brain, exceptional at maths while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched and he distrusts strangers. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world. [2018, UK, Approx. Runtime: 2 hours, 50 minutes, Rated: R]. 

David Benedict of Variety says the production, “achieve[s] a profound emotional impact”. “A beautiful, eloquent show about the wonders of a life that initially seems hopelessly constrained,” writes Henry Hitchings of The Evening Standard
